The singing of the hymn, "The Church's One Founda- 
tion,'' brought the Convention to attention. The Bishop 
offered a prayer. The secretary announced that a quorum 
was present. 

The Rev. A. C. D. Noe nominated the Rev. Stephen 
Gardner as Secretary of the Convention. The Rev. James 
F. Ferneyhough seconded the nomination. Mr. Gard- 
ner was elected. 

The Bishop nominated Mr. Junius D. Grimes as 
Chancellor of the Diocese; the Rev. James F. Ferney- 
hough seconded the nomination. Mr. Grimes was elected. 

The Rev. Harvey W. Glazier moved that the sessions 
of the Convention be as outlined in the program. Car- 
ried. 

The regular Committees were appointed by the Bishop. 

The Bishop read his Annual Address. (See Appen- 
dix "A"). 

The following telegram was read by the Secretary: 

"Please extend my loving greetings to the Bvshop, Clergy, 
and Laity in Convention assembled. May God. the Holv Spir- 
it, guide and strengthen you as you plan for the extensi:n of 
the Kingdom of Christ under the leadership of our able and 
beloved Bishop." 

(Signed) THOMAS C. DARST. 

The Bishop appointed Mr. Edwin Metts and Mr. Eu- 
gene Hicks to send an appropriate reply and message to 
Bishop Darst. 

The Rev. William B. Daniels, Jr., read the report of 
the Committee on the State of the Church, as follows: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF THE CHURCH 

Approximately 20% of the Parishes and Missions in the Di- 
ocese have not submitted complete statistical reports for the 
year 1945. However, on the basis of available figures, we find 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 27 

1946 Report of Committee on the State of the Church 

that there were 286 baptisms in 1945 compared with 273 in 
1944; and 299 confirmations as compared with 381 for the pre- 
vious year. One clergyman was lost by transfer to another 
Diocese, nine clergymen were in the Armed Service, one Dea- 
con and two Priests were ordained. 

Your Committee recommends that definite action be taken 
by the Convention to, enforce the canonical provision regarding 
the submitting of complete and accurate Parochial Reports by 
Clergy and Parish Officers. 

Payments on apportionments by the Parishes and Missions 
cf the Diocese amounted to $43,572.68 in 1945, a slight increase 
over the previous year. The General Church quota of $8,300.00 
was paid in full. Contributions to Thompson Orphanage 
reached .the total of $5,622.79, which is an increase of approxi- 
mately 35% as compared with the figures of two years ago. 

We find from an inspection of the records that the Diocese 
and the Parishes within it are in a more healthy condition 
financially than they have been for a number of year's. This 
fact offers to us of the Church in East Carolina a challenge to 
lift our horizon to new heights of accomplishment. We must 
strengthen and expand our work in the rural field and among 
our brsthren of the Negro race. Men, women and children in 
the far reaches of the Diocese ask the Church for the Bread 
of Life. We dare not give them the stone of indifference. 

The maicr problem facing us in regard to cur Negro work 
is the acute shortage of clergy. Every effort should be made to 
man our Colored Convocation with competent Negro clergy- 
man at the earliest possible date. 

The healing ministry of Christ has been carried on by the 
Good Shepherd Hospital, New Bern, with greater effect than 
ever before in the history of that splendid Institution. 
■ The Diocesan Camp and Conference Center at Camp Leach 
had a successful year in 1945, with a full program of activities 
over a period of eleven weeks. During the year", improvements 
to the physical properties of the Camp have been made and 
more adequate equipment installed. 

No report en the State of the Church would be complete 
without mentioning the two high moments in the recent life 
of our Diocesan Family. In the first of these great events was 
the consecration cf Dr. Thomas Henry Wright as Bishop of the 
Church of God in East Carolina. In him the people of the Di- 
ocese were consecrated anew to the glorious vision and noble 
ideals of the Son of God. 
The second of these great events was the death of Walter 



28 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Department of Finance May 

Raleigh Nee. We say "great event" because we saw in him 
anew that sacrificial consecration in abundant measure which 
lifted before our eyes the Cross of Christ. Today, the Diocese 
of East Carolina more nearly reflects the glory of God because 
in humility and patience, Walter Raleigh Noe lived, and loved, 
and died amongst us. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WM. B. DANILES, Jr., Chairman 

Mr. Junius D. Grimes moved the adoption of the re- 
port. Carried. 

The Chairman of the Committee on the Dispatch of 
Business, Mr. Peter Brown Ruffin, gave a report on the 
order of the day. . 

The Rev. John R. Tolar, Chairman of the Department 
of Finance, presented the report of his Department, 
which was adopted, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN OF THE DEPARTMENT OF 

FINANCE TO THE ANNUAL CONVENTION OF 191S 

Rt. Rev. Father in God, 
Gentlemen of the Convention: 

A glance at the Report of the Treasurer shows that the in- 
come of the Diocese for the year 1945, budgeted and not budget- 
ed, amounted to $103,039.33 and that there was disbursed dur- 
ing the year $79,480.57, leaving a balance in the Bank on Janu- 
ary 1st this year of $23,558.26. 

These figures, however, do not show the true state of our 
finances. The actual balance which can be used for the work 
of the Church is not $23,558.26, but $10,647.08. The difference 
represents different Funds held in trust by the Treasurer which 
were not cnecked out by the end of the year. As examples: 
St. Andrew's, Wrightsville, Fund had a balance of $1,007.57. 
Bishop Darst's Retirement Fund, disbursements on which start- 
ed only in October, had a balance of $925.00. The General 
Church for the salaries of colored clergy had a lapsed balance 
of $952.67 due to vacancies in several fields. This money now 
belongs to the General Church. The Bishop's Fund had at the 
end of the year an unused balance of $2,002.27 The Good 
Shepherd Hospital had a balance, which is being used for ex- 
pansion, of $1,205.13. And there is in the treasury, awaiting

re-investment, $5,900.00, proceeds of Bonds called, and Sale 
of Property. This belongs to the Diocesan Endowment Fund. 

The income of the Diocese for the year 1946 should be as 
follows: 

Balance from 1945 _ $10,647.08 

Apportionments, Parishes and Missions 43,306.36 

General Church Appropriations . 2,859.00 

Investments 4,686.96 

Total $61,499.40 

The Department estimates that, based on every field being 
manned, our expanses for the year will be $60,801.00, leaving a 
balance in the Treasury at the end of the year of $698.40. This 
is an increase over last year of approximately $10,000.00, details 
of which follow.

Gift to Miss Barnwell on Retirement 500.00 

Emergency Fund 4,000.00 



$60,801.00 

A word or two about the last two items. Miss Barnwell has 
for nearly thirteen years been the only assistant in the Diocesan 
Office. She has kept the books, written letters and rendered 
invaluable service all those years. She now feels that she 
must give up her work. The Executive Council, at its meet- 
ing in March, unanimously recommended that a gift of appre- 
ciation be given her, in which recommendation your Department 
heartily concurs. 

For the last two years the income of the Diocese hrs exceeded 
its needs because of the giving of the people. The time of plen- 
tiful money is never, or has never, been very long. Our people 
are loyal, will give when they can, but the time may well come 
again when adequate giving will be difficult. Your Department 
recommends, therefore, that an Emergency Fund be established 
against a rainy day; that $4,000.00 be placei in it. T:is fund 
is to be invested by the Treasurer, and is only to be spent on 
orders of the Bishop and Executive Council. Your Depart- 
ment further recommends that this fund be added to yearly 
as long as possible. 

A study of the budget will make it apparent that even with- 
out the Emergency Fund our present scale of apportionments 
is inadequate for Diocesan needs. A Committee of the Exe- 
cutive Council has been appointed to give this matter a care- 
ful study and report a revised scale made on the same basis 
as the present scale. This Committee will probably not be 
able to report in time for the next Every Member Canvass. 
Your Department, therefore, asks that all Parishes and Mis- 
sions take as their goal for their next Fall's Canvass, an in- 
crease of six per cent over their present apportionments un- 
less that Committee reports before the time for the Canvass. 
This increase is too small to bother most fields and is a step 
towards meeting our future needs. 

This report is your Chairman's "swan song". My term of 
office for over twenty years ends with this Convention. I wish 
to thank the Parishes and Missions for their cooperation during 
all that length of time. We have been through some hard times 
together and at times have faced some hard problems, but I

believe that you have all f;r the most pirt done what you 
could, some at the price of great sacrifice and effoit. Today we 
face happier times. I step down with the affairs of the Diocese 
sound, prosperous, ready f:r a great advance in opportunity 
and usefulness. May it be your constant aim to keep them so. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN R. TOLAR, Chairman. 

The Rev. James F. Ferneyhough made a motion that 
Mr. Tolar be given a rising vote of thanks. Carried. 

A motion was made that the report be accepted and 
adopted. Carried. 

The Rev. John R. Tolar presented the report of the 
Treasurer and moved that it be adopted. Carried. (See 
Appendix "B"). 

The Rev. John R. Tolar moved and Mr. Junius D. 
Grimes seconded the motion that Mr. Robert Strange be 
elected Treasurer and Financial Secretary. Carried. 

The Rev. John R. Tolar moved the adoption of the 
Proposed Budget. Carried. 

The Rev. John R. Tolar moved the adoption of the 
recommendation in his report that each Parish and Mis- 
sion be asked to set as a goal in their Every Member 
Canvass this Fall a 6% increase over their pledge for 
1946. 

Action on this motion was deferred to later on in the 
day. 

The Bishop then introduced two Clergymen who had 
recently come to the Diocese, the Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser, 
Jr., the Rector of St. Paul's Church, Greenville, and the 
Rev. Richard Sturgis, supply Rector of St. Stephen's 
Church, Goldsboro, while the Rector, the Rev. John 
Grainger, was absent as Chaplain in the Army.

The Centennial Campaign effort has continued. Total contribu- 
tions to date are approximately $200,500, an increase of $43,000 
over the amount reported at the last Convention. Of the total 
about $5,000 remains uncollected, and the estimated amount 
uncollectible is only $2,000. U. S. Bonds in excess of $100,000 
have been purchased from Campaign Funds, and $41,300 of 
U. S. Bonds at purchase price, have been received in payment 
of contributions. The gift of $40,000 by Mr. Roger Gant has 
given your trustees renewed confidence that the additional funds 
necessary to complete the development program will be forth- 
coming. Preliminary estimates indicate that funds en hand 
are sufficient to provide the new heating plant and laundry, 
new kitchen equipment and dormitory furnishings, and to 
landscape the front campus, but funds are still needed for the 
dormitory and classroom buildings. Until these are assured, 
other desirable improvements cannot be undertaken. 

During the 1945-1946 session the School again operated at ca- 
pacity, 236 Resident Students and 74 Non-resident Students.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS 
M. D. Whisnant, Superintendent 

Miss Dorothy Killan, the Orphanage Nurse, with the help of 
Dr. Hipp and Dr. Adams, takes oare of our children in the In- 
firmary. 

It is with sincere gratitude to the benefactors of the Thomp- 
son Orphanage that I am again able to bring you a report that 
reflects your loyal support. This support has resulted in a pro- 
gram of achievement and advancement, placing our institution 
in a position to give our children a well balanced life now and 
to prepare them to meet the daily tasks of life. 

The Orphanage continues to receive many calls for board- 
ing home care. From experience, we have found that this type 
of child can. be cared for in. a licensed boarding home, while 
we prefer to limit our care to destitute children. The following 
outline shows in detail the children cared for in 1945:

During the school year 1944-'45 we had 75 children enrolled 
in the Charlotte Public Schools. I am happy to report that all 
of our children were promoted to a higher grade, this being 
the third consecutive year of no school failures. Both the ciul- 
dren and Matrons are to be commended for their interest and 
effort in improving our school record. Our children are be- 
ginning to realize the importance of an education in obtaining 
a worthwhile job and position in life. Of the three girls w.io 
graduated, two qualified for the United States Cadet Nurse 
Corps, and entered training in September, 1945. 

Mr. McC. B. Wilson read the Church Pension Fund 
Report, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CHURCH 
PENSION FUND 

Since our last Convention your Committee, as well as the 
Diocese as a whole, has suffered an irreparable loss in the 
death of its Chairman, the late Walter Raleigh Noe. In his 
passing we have lost a valued friend and advisor, one who al- 
ways gave unstintingly of his fine talents and consecrated de- 
votion to the welfare of the Diocese and particularly the wel- 
fare and best interests of the clergy of the Diocese. 

Your Committee submits as a part of its report a letter from 
the Secretary of the Church Penssion Fund dated April 12, 
1946 and asks that it be printed in The Journal: 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 47 



Report of Church Pension Fund Commiltee 



We regret to report that there were arrearages in the payment 
of pansion assessments for 1945, amounting to $182.30, repre- 
senting 10 Parishes of which two are colored. Seven Organ- 
ized Missions of which two are colored; and one Unorganized 
Mission. Excluded from these figures are those places that were 
only one month in arrears, as of March 1, 1946. 

As to arrearages prior to January 1, 1945, there were only 
nine clergymen resident in the Diocese whose pension assess- 
ments were in arrears as of April 1, 1946. 

The Committee will be glad to furnish specific information to 
any who are interested in these matters. 

Your Committee directs your attention to the proposed 
change in the administration cf the Fund effective January 1, 
1947. As stated by the Secretary in his letter of April 12th, 
the total assets of the Fund now amount to approximately 
$40,000,000 and the Fund's liabilities in the form of reserves 
which must be maintained in order to discharge the Fund's prom- 
ises to present and future beneficiaries-, have likewise increased. 
The margin between the assets and the liabilities is still a rea- 
sonable one, however, a safe margin can be maintained in the 
future only if the assessment rate is increased to 10%, in view 
of the low interest returns procurable on the invested assets. 
As a result of an exhaustive study of the present situation and 
the probabilities for the future, and based on a report from its 
actuaries, the Trustees of the Fund have unanimously voted to 
make the following fundamental changes to become effective 
Janurry 1, 1947, subject to the approval of the General Con- 
vention : 

1. A reduction of the rate of interest assumed in the valua- 
tion of reserve liabilities from 3V4% to 2 3 A%. 

2. An increase in the assessment rate from 7%% to 10%. 

A reduction cf interest assumed in the valuation of the re- 
serve liabilities will, the Trustees of the Fund believe, place 
•the Fund on a far more realistic basis in view of economic con- 
dition now and in the predictable future. This change is ex- 
pected to eliminate the steady drain against surplus which 
has resulted from the interest deficiency in recent years and 
which might otherwise continue on an increasing basis as the 
reserve liabilities grow in the future. The continuation of 
this drain on surplus would result in seriously affecting the 
Trustees' ability to continue the present program of increased 
pensions beyond the basic promises, which are still on an ade- 
quate basis and would eventually affect the basic promises them- 
selves. The elimination of the di*ain on surplus will enable the 



48 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Church Pension Fund Committee May 

Trustees to continue the present program of increased benefits, 
with almost certain prospects (although it obviously cannot be 
guaranteed) of being able gradually to enlarge the scale of 
extra benefits beyond the Fund's basic and original promises. 
The increase in the assessment rate from iy 2 to 10 % is com- 
puted to be sufficient to counterbalance the loss of anticipated 
income from lower interest earnings. It is believed to be with- 
in the financial power of the Church to undertake. It is, more- 
over, in line with the cost of supporting similar pension sys- 
tems of other denominations, although below the cost of many 
industrial pension systems. The Church has demonstrated, 
throughout the history of the Church Pension Fund, that it 
considers the report of the clergy, currently and in relation to 
their pension protection, as a matter of prime importance. 

Comparison with Other Ministerial Pension Systems 

The asssssments payable to the Church Pension Fund in behalf 
of all clergy have always been at the rate of 7£% of the sal- 
ary, plus ore-sixth of salary where a rectory is furnished. It 
will be of interest, therefore, to note the rate of assessments 
required to support various other ministerial pension systems 
of a somewhat smaller character: 

Presbyterian, U. S. A 11% 

Presbyterian, United 11% 

Methodist 11% 

Presbyterian, U. S _ 10 % 

Northern Baptist 10% 

Disciples of Christ 10.5% 

Lutheron, Norwegian 10% 

Lutheran, United 8% 

Lutheran, American 8% 

Lutheran, Missouri 8% 

Evangelical 8% 

Evangelical and Pefcrmed (1) 8% 

Congregational (2) 6% 

(1) Contemplating an increase to 10%. 

(2) Deposits at the rate of 11% are now being urged. 

It will be noted that all. with the exception cf the Congrega- 
tional Fund, require a higher assessment rate than the Church 
Pension Fund. The Congregational Fund is purely an accumu- 
lation proposition by which the total deposits standing to the 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 49 



1946 Report of Church Pension Fund Committee 



credit of each clergyman are used to purchase an annuity when 
he reaches a retirement age. As shown above, they are now 
urging that the deposits be increased to 11%. The fact that oth- 
er ministerial systems require contributions at a rate higher 
than 1\% is significant. In few of the above pension systems 
moreover, are the benefits on as comprehensive a basis as those 
of the Church Pension Fund. 

By the terms of its Charter the Trustees of the Fund have the 
power to administer the Fund "on such terms and conditions, 
however, as such Corporation may from time to time approve 
and adopt.'' Nevertheless, the Trustees feel that the action they 
have taken, which they consider essential for the future safety 
of the Fund, should be reported to the Conventions of the sev- 
eral Dioceses and Missionary Districts for their information and 
then to the General Convention of 1946 for its approval.

Chapel Hill, North Carolina 

Third Sunday after Easter, 1946. 

The Rt. Rev. Thomas H. Wright, D. D. 
507 Southern Building, 
Wilmington, North Carolina. 

Dear Bishop Wright: 

I regret to write that I will be unable to give my report to 
the Convention of East Carolina in person. Since East Caro- 
lina and Western North Carolina always seem to convene sim- 
ultaneously, I try to appear at each Convention on alternate 
years. 

I am. enclosing my report and trust that it will be found sat- 
isfactory. You can submit it by title, or if you think wise, have 
it read aloud. I have made it concise so that it could be read 
out if that is desired. 

I hope that East Carolina will keep us in the budget for 
$600.00 a year. 

Best wishes for a successful convention. 
Sincerely, 

EMMET GRIBBIN. 

REPORT OF THE STUDENT CHAPLAIN AT THE 
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA 

Since my last report the situation in Chapel Hill has not 
changed except the number of students there is now the larg- 
est in history. Naturally the majority of these are veterans 
and quite a few are married. Almost six hundred students at 
the present time are Episcopalians. About seventy of these are 
from East Carolina. 

Church attendance during the past year has been remarka- 
ble. About every other Sunday we find it necessary to put 
up extra chairs to accommodate the crowds, and a few times we 
have had to turn people away because there was no room. 

The Student Organizations have flourished more successfully 
since the end of the war. One of particular interest is a 
group of about 18 graduate students who meet every two weeks 
for a scholarly discussion about Christianity. 

Now that the war is over we hope more men will become in- 
terested in studying for the ministry. Four Carolina men are 



54 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Siuc<eni Chaplain, U. N. C. May 

entering various Seminaries next fall. A student from your 
Diocese attended a conference on the ministry and has decided 
to study for Holy Orders. There are two more students from 
East Carolina whom I believe will make the same decision. 

We were happy to. have Bishop Wright pay us a visit during 
the winter. All East Carolina students were invited to a ban- 
quet in his honor, and he made an excellent address to the 
"group. We are planning to have such a banquet annually. 

It happens by chance that most of the colleges in the State 
are located in the Diocese of North Carolina. Due to the finan- 
cial help of East Carolina, Western North Carolina, the Church 
Society for College Work, and various local Parishes the Church's 
ministry is carried to almost every college. Indirectly East 
Carolina supports this whole program cf college work, though 
direct financial aid is given only toward my salary. Since, 
however, you contribute toward my salary, there is more 
available to support the other college workers, all of whom 
minister to East Carolina students. There are about ten part- 
time workers supported by the North Carolina Diocesan bud- 
get and three full time workers. The Rev. H. N. Parsley is 
full time Chaplain far over 400 Episcopal students at Duke. Miss 
Margaret Fletcher in Greensboro does a wonderful job with 177 
Episcopal girls in the Woman's College. Incidentally, the Diocese 
of North Carolina has just spent $5,000.00 renovating St. Mary's 
House, our student center there. Beginning in June or July 
it is hoped that there will be a college worker at N. C. State 
College in Raleigh. He will give half of his time to State and 
half as assistant at the Church of the Good Shepherd. 

We appreciate your interest and help and trust that both will 
be continued. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EMMET GRIBBIN, 
Student Chaplain at the University of 
North Carolina. 

The Rev. John H. Bonner, Jr., nominated the following 
men for membership on the Camp Leach Committee: 

Rev. William B. Daniels, Jr., Mr. W. Shaw Bonner, Jr., Rev. 
Harvey W. Glazier, Mr. Frank Fagan. 

They were duly elected.

munications from the General Convention. 

The Rev. James F. Ferneyhough made the following 
resolution, which was adopted: 

Whereas the 63rd Annual Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina has been most generously and delightfully 
entertained at the kindness of the Rector, congregation and 
friends cf the Church of the Good Shepherd of Wilmington, 
now therefore, be it resolved: 

That this Convention express to the Rev. Harvey W. Glazier, 
Rector, and through him to the congregation and friends a 
rising vote for the grateful appreciation of this Convention. 

A motion was made and carried that the Sexton of the 
Church be gA T en $5.00 for his service to the Convention. 

The Secretary presented the Report of the Executive 
Council. (See Appendix '"F"). 

The Secretary presented the Report of the Army and 
Navy Commission, (See Appendix "G"), asking for an 
appropriation of $5,160.00 a year; which was granted. 

There being no further business, the Convention 
adjourned.

APPENDIX "A* 
BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity 
of the Diocese of East Carolina: 

' "Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father 
and the Lord Jesus Christ." 

It is with a profound sense of gratitude and humility 
that I, as your Bishop, welcome you to the Sixty-third 
Annual Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina, and 
the first over which I have the high privilege of presid- 
ing. 

It has been seven and a half months now since I was 
consecrated in St. James' Church, Wilmington, and those 
months have been days of great joy and inspiration to 
me. With the exception of a very few places, I have 
been throughout the length and breadth of the Diocese. 
I have met many of our fine people, and have had con- 
ferences and meetings with countless numbers of our 
loyal men and women. Each day I thank God that in 
His gracious goodness He has seen fit to call me to serve 
in this, my beloved section of His vineyard. I cannot ex- 
press adequately to those of you who had some part in 
my returning, my sincere appreciation for your high 
confidence. God grant that I may live up, in some meas- 
ure, to the high calling and the noble tradition which 
has been handed down to me. 

As I begin my first Convention address to you I cannot 
refrain from expressing again, as I have to many of you 
personally, my love, admiration and affection for the 
man whom I am succeeding in this Diocese, my beloved 
Bishop and Father in God, Thomas Campbell Darst. As 
I have said on many occasions during the past seven 



68 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

months, he will always be my Bishop. He stands out to 
me, as I look back through the years, as the great shining 
spiritual influence in my liie. He laid his hands upon 
my head in confirmation when I was twelve years old. He 
laid his hands upon my head in those two services of 
Ordination to the Sacred Ministry, and then again, sever- 
al months ago, he laid his hands upon my head in that 
service of Consecration. My constant prayer is that 
you and I working together — for remember that I can 
do nothing without you — may bring to pass some of 
those high hopes, some of those consecrated ambitions 
and lofty aspirations that Bishop Darst has for you 
and for me in this beloved East Carolina. God grant 
that we may always be true to his hopes and his expec- 
tations for East Carolina. It is a source of great com- 
fort to me to have his loving council, his wisdom, keen 
insight and inspiration at this time. I think that the Di- 
ocese should know that he is still giving himself unstint- 
ingly to our Diocesan life. Hardly a week passes that 
he does not journey to some point in the Diocese, render- 
ing useful and valuable service. I thank God each day 
for his life and his presence with us and his Christ-like 
influence. 

On March 11, 1946, the whole Diocese of East Carolina 
was shocked and saddened by the death of our beloved 
friend and brother, the Rev. Walter Raleigh Noe, Exec- 
utive Secretary of the Diocese, Treasurer of the Diocese, 
Secretary of the Convention and Editor of The Mission 
Herald. Not only did he carry on the work of the Dioces- 
an Office with skill and dispatch, but in addition to his 
many duties he served as Priest-in-charge of the Inland 
Waterway Missions, St. Andrew's Church, Wrightsville 
Sound; St. Mary's Church, Burgaw; and All Souls' Chap- 
el, North West. His loss is a great one and will be felt 
in all phases of our Diocesan life. He will always be 
remembered for his broad Christian spirit, his true and 






SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 69 

194S Bishop's Annual Address 

loyal devotion. He gave of the best of his many abilities, 
untiringly and unceasingly to the work of his beloved 
Diocese and Church. God grant that he may go from 
strength to strength in his life of perfect service. 

It would be impossible in this address to give adequate 
recognition to all the events of 1945, but I do want to 
mention at least certain accomplishments of churches 
which have come to my attention and which I think 
should be noted at this time. 

St. Paul's Church, Wilmington, has made notable 
progress in reducing the burdensome debt which has 
long encumbered it. Through the efforts of the Rector 
and Vestry this debt has now been reduced to a negli- 
gible figure. Extensive repairs and improvements 
have been made at St. John's Church, Wilmington; St. 
Cyprian's Church, New Bern; St. Peter's Church, Wash- 
ington; St. Mary's Church, Kinston; Christ Church, Eliz- 
abeth City; St. Philip's Church, Southport and Grace 
Church, Plymouth. 

Although partially destroyed by fire, St. George's 
Church, Pikeville, has been suitably restored in an un- 
believably short time through the tireless efforts of the 
earnest and devoted Lay Reader in charge. Plans have 
been made for a new Parish House which will without 
doubt soon be under construction. 

Architect's drawing and plans are now being made for 
the construction of new and adequate Parish House fa- 
cilities at Trinity Church, Lumberton, and St. John's 
Church, Fayetteville. 

These Churches should be complimented and should 
be singled out in this Convention for their awareness to 
recognize that now is the time to make plans for needed 
Church improvement and to raise and set aside adequate 
funds to be used lor this purpose as soon as building 
conditions permit. Throughout the country there has 
never been a time before when so many churches of 



70 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

all denominations have either made special pledges or 
set aside money for church repairs and improvements, 
and it is a short sighted church indeed that does not care- 
fully think through the physical needs during the years 
and make plans to adequately build for those needs in the 
years that lie ahead. 

The Laymen's Thank Offering has reached its high- 
est peak during the year 1945. This offering is grow- 
ing in interest and support and is serving a great and 
useful purposes in enabling us to extend our Missionary 
Program into areas of the Diocese that we would other- 
wise be unable to touch. It is hoped that every layman 
in the Diocese will some day take part in this offering 
and share with us sacrificially in this high adventure for 
Christ and His Church. 

Although each month since the end of the War has 
brought a rapid decrease in the number of men in our 
Armed Forces, many churches in the Diocese have still 
been able to render a valuable service to the personnel of 
nearby Camps and Bases. The churches that have had 
the greatest opportunity for service during 1945 have 
been St. John's, Fayetteville ; St. Anne's Church, Jack- 
sonville ; Christ Church, New Bern ; St. Stephen's Church, 
Goldsboro, and Christ Church, Elizabeth City. 

I feel in this address that I should pay tribute to the 
splendid group of Lay Readers of East Carolina who 
have rendered such loyal service during the War years. 
In spite of the serious shortage of Clergy the Diocese 
has managed to keep its churches open and, with few 
exceptions, regular services have been maintained 
throughout the Diocese. This has been due, in large 
measure, to the loyal and fine assistance of a wonder- 
ful corps of Lay Readers. In the area around Wilming- 
ton the Diocese has been fortunate in having the devot- 
ed services of one of its own retired Priests, the Rev. 
Thomas P. Noe, who has made it possible for many of the 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 

1946 Bishop's Annual Address 

Churches to have services of Holy Communion and other 
services at stated intervals. 

Since the last Convention of this Diocese two new 
Clergymen have come into our Diocesan family, the Rev. 
Richard L. Sturgis, who is serving St. Stephen's Church, 
Goldsboro, until the return of the Rector, and the Rev. 
Roscoe C. Hauser, Jr., the new Rector of St. Paul's 
Church, Greenville. The Diocese welcomes these two ad- 
ditions, both of them men who have had unusually fine 
records, both in the Civilian Ministry and overseas as 
Chaplains in our Armed Forces. 

Our Colored Work 

Our work for and among the nearly four hundred 
thousand Negroes of East Carolina is some of the most 
challenging of our Diocese, and I believe is filled with 
great possibilities in the years that lie ahead. We are 
greatly hampered at the present time by the serious 
scarcity of Negro Clergymen, which condition is acute 
throughout the whole country. I find from careful in- 
vestigation that there seems to be no immediate hope of 
relieving this shortage. The Church at large must deal 
with this problem by encouraging more of our promising 
Negro boys to enter our colleges and Seminary to prepare 
for the Sacred Ministry. This is a long range solution, 
however, and East Carolina must meet the immediate 
need. To do this it is the plan of Archdeacon Johnson 
and myself to set up a Training Center in the City of 
New Bern for Negro Lay Evangelists under the wise 
and able direction of the Archdeacon. As soon as funds 
are secured it is our hope to construct a. modest building 
with dormitory and classroom facilities for this purpose. 
The plan will meet two needs, the immediate filling of 
our Negro Churches on Sundays with well trained Lay 
Readers, and the encouragement of many young colored 



72 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

men to enter the Ministry of the Church by enrollment 
in the Seminary at Petersburg, Virginia. 

The Good Shepherd Hospital has more than justified 
its establishment as it continues with increasing useful- 
ness to minister to the sick and injured people of a con- 
stantly expanding area. 

I am particularly happy to be able to announce that 
near the close of 1945 we were able through an arrange- 
ment with the National Council, the Diocesan Department 
of Finance and the individual Parishes and Missions, to 
raise the level of salaries of our Colored Clergymen to 
an amount that will at least relieve some of the financial 
worries of these faithful and poorly compensated soldiers 
of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Rural Work 

Since I have been back in the Diocesse I have mention- 
ed to our Executive Board my hopes and sympathetic 
feelings regarding our Rural and Missionary Work, which 
Bishop Darst has rightly called "the Seed Ground of our 
Diocesan life." Our Rural Work has suffered as our 
towns have grown. In may cases, drained of their youth 
by our industrial sections, our country Churches are 
facing problems more serious than most of us realize. 
I feel that we must begin immediately the formulation 
of wise, long range plans and policies f~r the rehabil'i ra- 
tion and strengthening of our Rural Work. Plans must 
be worked out for greater concentraton on strategic points 
rather than our present system of requiring a man to 
serve from four to six churches in two or more Coun- 
ties. Missionary money, given by our peonle for this 
purpose, must be thought of as its name implies, for the

money must then be released in order to be used again 
and again for the purpose for which it is intended. Mis- 
sionary money must be constantly in a fluid state. It is my 
hope that the Department of Missions and the Depart 
ment of Finance will give serious thought to. this matter, 
seeking to establish a strong Missionary Policy in the Di- 
ocese, looking ultimately toward the self support of every 
strategic point in the field. I take this stand because of my 
sense of duty and obligation to those of our people who 
are contributing sacrificially to the Missionary Work 
of the Church. 

Visual Education 

Throughout the Country the need is being felt for 
more adequate attention given to the Religious Training 
of our Young People and Children and to the re-thinking 
of our Sunday School Program. Times have changed. 
New methods, chiefly centering around Visual Education 
are not only being adopted by the Public School System 
but by the Church Schools as well. The child is accus- 
tomed to receiving his instruction in this manner and 
the Church's method of presentation, to be effective, 
must not be foreign to him. I am keenly interested in 
this problem. The future of our Church stands or falls 
upon the awareness of our people to our Children's needs. 
It is my hope that East Carolina will be pioneer in this 
field, and will render a service not only within its own 
borders, but, through example, to the Church at large. 
It is my intention this coming year to set up Training- 
Centers for our Church School Teachers where trained 
experts in this field will go about the Diocese giving in- 
struction and leading Conferences of Church School 
Teachers and Parents. I ask your prayers and your 
blessing upon this undertaking.

Reconstruction and Advance Fund 

When the Church's Reconstruction and Advance Pro- 
gram was started I made the statement that I considered 
it "the greatest venture of the Church in this genera- 
tion.'' I still feel that this is true. It must be seen not 
alone in terms of replacing bombed and burned build- 
ings, but as the Great Effort of the Church of Jesus 
Christ in the Post-war world to make of One Brotherhood 
'"'ail nations of men to dwell on the face of the whole 
earth." 

The response of East Carolina to this appeal has been 
magnificent. Although all of the pledges have not been 
made and all of the Churches have not yet reported, I 
am informed by the Rev. Alsxander Miller and Mr. Rob- 
ert Strange, Co-chairmen of Reconstruction and Advance, 
that the Diocesan expectation will come nearer $40,000 
than the expected $30,000, set as a goal by our Executive 
Board. I feel that St. James' Church, Wilmington, should 
be complimented as their gift to date to this fund of 
$13,678.85 represents more than one-third of. the total 
Diocesan Expectation. 

As I close this, my first Convention Address to you, 
and as I look back upon the World Events of 1945, I feel 
deeply conscious of the great responsibility of those of 
us who profess and call ourselves Christians. Although 
a great war has been won, and the lives of many of our 
young men have been sacrificially given, we still live in 
a troubled world. Across the waters such suffering as 
Europe has seldom ever seen; at home, constant strife 
between hbor and capital. St. Paul in his first Epistle 
to the Corinthians said "a Great and Effectual Door is 
Open to Us, but there are Many Adversaries." Yes there 
are many adversaries, but we, as Christians, know that 
there is an Onen Door through which, if Nations and Men 
will walk, they shall see the light. Bishop Tucker, our 
Presiding Bishop, says that he believes that we in Ameri- 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 75

ea are "God's Chosen People" in this generation. '"Cho- 
sen" not for any special salvation, but "Chosen" for a 
great task — that of saving the world. The world has 
tried everything else except Christianity. The victory 
we have won me ins nothing unless it is won in the 
hearts of men. We cannot live happily in a world domi- 
nated by fear and hate. God grant that we, as Chris- 
tians, may do our part to make a Christian Nation here 
in our beloved America and a Christian world based on 
our Lord's Brotherhood of Man. To the building of such 
a world may we, the followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
dedicate ourselves today.

APPENDIX "C" 



REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

TO THE 

DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



* 



REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE 
DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Rt. Rev. Father in God, and Members of 'the Convention: 

Today it is my privilege and duty, as President of the 
Woman's Auxiliary in this Diocese, to bring to you a re- 
port of that organization for the year 1945. I bring this 
report with a deep feeling of gratitude for the devotion of 
the women who have contributed to this work done in 
the Master's Service. 

A report, to be of value, presupposes a certain degree 
of familiarity with the work being reported. This, I feel 
sure, is the case with the clergy and laymen of the Di- 
ocese in regard to the work of the women as carried on 
through the work of the Auxiliary. 

There has been a growing realization on the part of 
the women that the Auxiliary is not a separate organiza- 
tion but the women of the Church at work on the Program 
of the Church. It is of course recognized that in order 
to do efficient, effective work, there must be a certain 
amount of machinery. The emphasis, however, has not 
been on department and committee set-up as a goal in 
itself, but as a means of reaching more women and ty- 
ing them up for more devoted and intelligent service in 
the work of the Church. 

Just as the Program of the Church is carried out 
through Departments, so the work of the Auxiliary 
functions through similar Departments. 

During this past year, through the Department of 
Missions and Church Extension the women have given 
in the Five Fields of Service. 

In the Field of the World they have given to: China — 
particularly to the Diocesan Middle School there; to the 
Holy Cross Mission in Liberia; the Presiding Bishop's 
Fund for World Relief; the American Mission to Lepers, 
to Dr. Newton Chiang for work among Christian stu- 



114 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 



dents in China; to the Near East Foundation and to the 
Reconstruction and Advance Program. 

In the Field of the Nation they have given to: Ab- 
bott House, South Dakota, for the rehabilitation of chil- 
dren; to Layettes for destitute babies in the mountains; 
to Rev. Wm. Gordon, Missionary Priest in Alaska; to 
work among the blind and deaf in this province; to Ne- 
gro Youth Leadership; to the Hudson Stuck Memorial 
Hospital in Alaska; to the Indians in South Dakota; to 
the Church Mission of Help, Conscientious Objectors; 
American Bible Society, Bishop Payne Divinity School; 
and toward the expenses of Japanese families leaving 
relocation centers. 

In the Field of the Diocese they have given to: The 
Bishop's Fund ($845) ; the Bishop's Scholarship ($300) ; 
$200 toward the salary of the College Student Worker 
and $150.00 for her Discretionary Fund. They have given 
to Negro Youth Leadership in the Diocese, to the Good 
Shepherd Hospital in New Bern ; to the Inland Waterway 
Missions; Galilee Mission; Camp Leach; theUnited Youth 
Program and to Thompson Orphanage. They have also 
sent gifts of money from time to time to our own East 
Carolina Missionaries. 

The Secretary sent out 1800 Auxiliary Manuals — a 
copy to each member of the Auxiliary and to every cler- 
gyman in the Diocese. The Auxiliary furnished the 
leaflets to be used in the Churches for the Churchwide 
Day of Prayer. The address which Miss Elizabeth Grif- 
fin gave at the two Convocational meetings was mimeo- 
graphed and a copy sent to each Auxiliary for program 
material. 

Under the Department of Christian Education the 
work has continued steadily with much improv- 
ment shown particularly in the smaller groups. The 
women have followed the program of the General 
Church and have studied the subjects recommend- 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 115 

1946 Report of Woman's Auxiliary 

ed. The women provided and financed two of the 
four courses at the Adult Conference at Camp Leach 
and scholarships were given to all the conferences 
and camps by the Auxiliary Branches. 
Through the Promotion Department copies of all the 
Reconstruction and Advance Literature were mailed to 
the Auxiliary branches and a letter was written in ex- 
planation and urging the women to study the fields in 
the Reconstruction Program. 

After the General Convention in Kansas in 1940 the 
editor of the Churchman stated that he thought the Wo- 
man's Auxiliary was decidedly the most forward look- 
ing body in the Church. Perhaps the outstanding reason 
for this is that for many years the women of the Church 
have studied the mission courses and the subjects rec- 
ommended by the Church. The women of the Church 
have studied Africa, India, China, Japan, the Philippines, 
Latin America., etc. In these studies they have learned 
about the background, both historical and political of the 
particular country, of the characteristics of the people 
and their manner of living — and most important — of 
their needs and what the Christian Church is doing to 
meet these needs through preaching, teaching and heal- 
ing, that is through our Christian Churches, Hospitals 
and Mission Schools. The women of the Church have 
studied the findings of the great Christian International 
Conferences; Jerusalem, Oxford, Edinburg, Madras, the 
Youth Congress in Amsterdam, and they have sought to 
learn from the great Christian leaders of these Confer- 
ences what the will of God is for His world today. Re- 
cently they have studied the findings of the Dumbarton 
Oaks Conference and of the San Francisco Conference; 

Can we not have Parish Education Programs and Par- 
ish studies for all the members of the Parish, men, wom- 
en, young people and children, in place of the Auxiliary 
Study groups? I make an earnest plea to the clergy that 



116 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 



they will have these study groups in their Parishes, study- 
ing and discussing the subjects recommended by the 
Christian Church. Surely we would go forward if all our 
people were better informed! Certainly the Church of- 
fers us a sufficiently challenging program. And yet we 
are not the united force we should be — the surface is 
only being touched. If the whole membership of the 
Church is to show growth and increased vitality we must 
have knowledge and understanding of what the Church 
is doing to meet the needs of the world. 

Through the Department of Christian Social Relations, 
651 kits were filled for Russian Relief; 182 Christmas 
packages sent to liberated countries, and thousands of 
pounds of good used clothing given for overseas relief. 
Boxes of clothing have been sent to many missions in 
this country. The women have given almost $900 in new 
clothing to the children of the Thompson Orphanage, be- 
sides sending Christmas presents for the children and pro- 
viding an allowance for their spending money. Four Aux- 
iliaries carry a share each of Building and Loan to be giv- 
en to the children they clothe when they graduate, and 
leave the Orphanage. The Auxiliary branches have giv- 
en nearly $1,800.00 for relief work in their various com- 
munities and parishes and almost 2000 garments have 
been given to needy families. (This does not include, of 
course, the garments shipped overseas). Churchwomen 
have served as Red Cross workers, Gray Ladies, Nurses' 
Aides, and U. S. O. Hostesses. Christmas packages and 
stockings were filled for men and women in all Army 
Camps and Hospitals in the Diocese. Through this De- 
partment programs on Race Relations, Family Life and 
Juvenile Delinquency were given. 

Through the Supply Department we sent money to the 
National Church as our share of the increase to mission- 
ary clergy in the nation until the change from missionary 
boxes to an increase in salary could be adjusted and taken 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 117 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



care of by the budget of the National Church. Through 
this department the women have sent nearly $1000 in 
money and gifts to the Thompson Orphanage. To the 
Inland Waterway Missions and Galilee Mission they have 
sent more than $550 worth in supplies and to the Good 
Shepherd Hospital in New Bern over $300 in linens, 
bandages, etc. 

The United Thank Offering for 1945 was the largest 
East Carolina has ever presented in one year, amounting 
to $7,681.37. 

Last year the Auxiliary in this Diocese raised in all 
the amount of $26,797.25 including the United Thank 
Offering. The Auxiliary Apportionment was $2,500.00. 
The women, therefore, gave over and above their ap- 
portionment $24,297.25 in actual cash. Figures are a 
hard, cold gauge and seem to put things on a material 
basis, and yet our gifts, as well as our prayers and work, 
do reflect that great love which cares and which saves 
mankind. 

I wish I could report that all the women in the Di- 
ocese are vitally interested in the work of the Church 
and actively engaged in the program of the Auxiliary. 
But such is not the case. Much has been accomplished, 
of which we may well be proud; but there is so much 
more to do. We have such unlimited resources and yet 
how small has been our use of them! 

There is a story that a certain Monk of old, in his long- 
ing to present Christ, fashioned a Crucifix. The result was 
very crude, but while he slept, an angel made of it a 
thing of beauty. 

May the Holy Spirit take our work of the past year 
and so purify and ennoble it, that it may be acceptable 
unto Him Whom together we have served. 
Respectfully submitted, 
MARY OWEN SUTHERLAND, 
President Woman's Auxiliary, 
Diocese of East Carolina.

To the Board of Trustees, 
Diocese of East Carolina. 
Wilmington, North Carolina. 

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the accounts and records as maintained 
by your Treasurer covering the various funds held by the 
Trustees for the period from April 1, 1945, to March 31, 1946, 
and submit herewith the results of such examination on the 
following exhibits:

Income „._. Exhibit "A" Sheet 1

Receipts and Disbursements 

All Funds .„„ _ Exhibit "B" Sheets 1 to 24 

Our examination embraced the verification of all receipts 
as shown by the books and records, also all d:sbursements 
made from the Board's Depository and supported by cancelled 
vouchers. In connection with certain transfers within funds 
and most particularly with the Joint Bond Account, we have 
shown these items as memoranda under the receipts and dis- 
bursements of the respective funds, however, to properly ac- 
count for transfers to and from the Joint Bond Account, it is 
necessary to handle same as actual receipts and disbursements 
in the Joint Account. 

The purchase of six A. C. L. General Unified 4%% Bonds 
at a cost of $6,465.00 has been accounted for by receipts in the 
Joint Bond Account from the respective funds. No correspond-

ing disbursements were made in the individual funds, since the 
transaction was only an exchange of cash for bonds and re- 
flects as such in the balances to be accounted for. , 

As shown by Exhibit "A" the fund balances at March 31, 
1946 allocated as to income and principal, are as follows: 

Fund Balances — Income

The funds on deposit with the Wilmington Saving & Trust 
Company were subjected to proper verification as of March 31, 
1946, and all securities detailed herein are on deposit in the 
safety deposit box at the Security National Bank, and in the 
Morris Plan Bank. 

In connection with the real estate owned by the Trustees 
sales made during the year under review from the Forbes Es- 
tate resulted in a profit of $243.80 as follows:

We have shown under Exhibit "B", Sheet 16, receipts in the 
amount of $325.00 covering a lot sold in South Mills, N. C. As 
far as we were able to ascertain this lot was never set up 
against the assets of the Diocese, and during our examination 
we were advised that the Diocese owns several pieces of real

estate. It is our recommendation that the deeds covering same 
be obtained so that a permanent record could be made on the 
books of the Diocese. 

The receipts and disbursements for the period under review 
covering all funds are presented in columnar form allocated be- 
tween Income and Principal under Exhibit "B", Sheet 1 to 24 
inclusive. Detail of investments applicable to each fund will 
be found at the end of each respective receipts and disburse- 
ments statement.

In our opinion, based upon such an examination, and sub- 
ject to the foregoing comments, the accompanying Exhibits 
fairly present the condition of the funds held by the Board of 
Trustees at March 31, 1946.

CAMP LEACH 



APPENDIX "E' 



CAMP LEACH 

Gentlemen: 

Herein is my report on the operations of the Diocesan Camp 
at Camp Leach for the fiscal year 1944-'45. Actually this re- 
port covers the period from September 6, 1944 to October 15, 
1945. 

As in my last yearly report I will make the following di- 
visions : 

1. Total Expenditures. 

2. Camp Operation. 

3. Camp Attendance. 

4. Capital Account. 

5. Camp Leach Debt. 

6. Needs and Recommendations. 

I would like in the beginning to say that I believe this to 
have been a most successful year for the Camp. Since the 
Diocese purchased this property nearly sixteen years ago, it 
is the first summer in which we have operated for the entire 
summer. Actually this summer we were in operation for 
eleven weeks. During that time we gave to every member of 
our. Diocesan family over and above the age of nine, an oppor- 
tunity to participate in a camp or conference. To me this is 
the purpose and reason for having such a spot within the Di- 
ocese as Camp Leach. We are not, nor should we ever be in 
competition with commercial camps and vacation rendezvous. 
Rather the purpose behind our endeavor is to have this as a Di- 
ocesan center in which spiritual training and guidance is given to 
aid our Church family in living the Christian life. Living at Camp 
for eleven weeks as I did this summer is hard work and I 
surely wouldn't be willing to make the great effort and sacrifice 
it demands, unless I believed it was furthering God's Kingdom 
here upon earth. I believe we are doing this kind of a job at 
Camp Leach and I pray that we shall ever continue with 
such a goal in mind.

SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 149 

1946 Report - Camp Leach 

Actually the balance at the end of this fiscal year is $650.41, 
since a loan totaling $45.00 was made to the caretaker to. aid 
in the harvesting of his tobacco. This will be repaid early next 
month. 

To my knowledge there are no accounts which have not been 
paid for the year just ended. The make-up of this balance will 
be discussed under Camp Operation. 

Analysis of Expenditures 

A — Camp Operation: We received from camp fees alone dur- 
ing the past summer $6,839.75. During the same period we re- 
ceived in rebates for such items as telephone calls and bad 
checks $53.00, making a grand total of $6,892.75. $29.00 of 
this was refunded in the interest of the Camp. Actually, 
$6,377.82 was spent in the direct operation of the Camp. Thus 
a surplus of $485.93 can be analyzed as profit from operation. 

B — Capital Account: Toward this account we received 
$921.17. We had hoped to raise $1,200.00 but two Par- 
ishes that promised to help toward this fund did not make a 
contribution. We made no definite campaign this year but 
merely asked additional givings from parishes and missions we 
knew were interested. We spent for permanent improvements 
at Camp this summer $1,260.05. We thus have a deficit in this 
account of $338.88. Transferring as usual the item for un- 
specified gifts over into this account we end the year with an 
actual deficit of $300.08. 

C — Diocese: Last year, through the Department of Religious 
Education we instituted in the Diocesan budget an item of 
$500.00 which was to be used as a sustaining fund to aid the 
camp when operations were not successful. This year we spent 
$188.00 to pay back Midget Camp refunds for 1944 and $235.28 
to pay the fire insurance for 1944-45. We thus have a balance 
of $76.72 remaining in the Diocesan fund. 

D — Canteen: The Camp store received as income $544.90 for 
the summer. It paid out $482.56, leaving balance of $62.34 to 
be placed in the general fund. About $80.00 was charged against 
the Canteen this summer to pay the salaries of two young boys 
whom I had working with me all summer. Thus the canteen re- 
alized a net profit of about $150.00 for the summer. 

E — Offerings: In this account there is an undesignated bal- 
ance of $117.63. One of the things I hope the Committee will 
do. today is to establish a definite procedure by which these of- 
ferings may be used on behalf of the religious life of Camp 
Leach.

In preparing the budget for the coming year one great change 
must be made in this schedule. In order to keep the present 
caretaker, it was necessary to make an agreement whereby 
the Camp will pay him $600.00 during the coming year. In ex- 
change he has agreed to give up his farm and to spend full 
time working on the Camp property. I think that this is a need- 
ful thing but I wish this committee might pass on it today. Sal- 
aries in general are still low, but increased attendance will en- 
able us to raise them sharply. Though we had nursing ser- 
vice during most of the summer, it was all voluntary and no 
salary had to be paid.

The Directors are to tell thi,s committee about each camp 
and conference, so nothing further will be added by me. How- 
ever, I give these figures to show how much work must be 
done during the coming months to increase the attendance at 
all the camps and conferences next summer:

Missions in the Diocese:

There is still a definite need for a capital fund to be used 
each year for permanent improvements at Camp. I will try at 
the end of this report to outline a few of the necessary im- 
provements that must be made during the coming year. 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 153 

1946 Reporl - Camp Leach 

5 — Diocesan Debt 

At the end of the camp season, I sent to the Executive Secre- 
tary of the Diocese a check for $260.02 as a payment on the Di- 
ocesan debt. $229.12 of this represented the amount advanced 
by the Diocese during 1943 and 1944 for the interest on the 
principal. The Diocese did not charge us any interest on this 
money, therefore that part of the debt has been removed. In 
addition $30.00 has been paid this year on the principal, plus 
$ .90 due as interest on this amount to October 1st. 

The Camp now owes the Trustees of the Diocese $3,000.00 
with interest on that amount at 4%. Thus on December 31, 
1945, we will have to pay $120.00 in interest for this year. With 
the present balance on hand as stated, we will be able to take 
care of this obligation in a satisfactory manner. 

6 — Needs and Recommendations 

Briefly, I give you a short list of the immediate needs of the 
Camp, listing them in the order needed. 

1. Faculty house for men. 

2. Concrete square and athletic equipment. 

3. Station wagon or truck. 

4. Moving picture projector. 

5. Kitchen stove and kitchen equipment. 

6. New cots. 

7. Boats for recreation. 

Of course, one could go on indefinitely listing things the 
camp needs. Nor can we afford to confuse such needs as these 
with our plans for further building and development of the 
property that we may give it greater usefulness. Such things 
as an all-weather building for week-end conferences and re- 
treats, a chapel, an infirmary, and class room buildings. These 
items represent the long range program, to which we who. are 
members of this committee must be ever dedicated. 

To you I submit this report, trusting that the operation of 
the camp during the past year has been efficient and satisfac- 
tory. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN H. BONNER, Jr., 

Business Manager.

Finance. After discussion of the necessary expenses of 
the Bishop, it was decided that the most satisfactory- 
way to take care of his needs would be to furnish him a 
car, at the earliest possible date. 

The matter of salaries for the missionary clergy was 
discussed at some length, and the Bishop was authorized 
to secure clergymen, if possible, for vacant places at a 
salary not to exceed $2,400.00 a year, and the Depart- 
ments of Church Extension and Finance were requested 
to make a study of the whole matter of stipends for the 
aided Parishes and Missions at the earliest possible date.

vance Fund now being promoted by the General Church, 
it was decided to follow the General Church plan of hav- 
ing a canvass in the several parishes and missions. It 
was felt that the Diocese of East Carolina could take a 
goal of $30,000.. 00 for Reconstruction and Advance 
Work. The Bishop and the Executive Secretary were 
requested to appoint Reconstruction and Advance Fund 
Chairmen in vacant parishes and missions, and the Bish- 
op was requested to write letters to the clergy and Sen- 
ior Wardens ol the parishes and missions, giving them 
as much information as possible about the Reconstruc- 
tion and A dvance Fund and expressing the hope that 
they would do their very best for the success of this ef- 
fort. 

The Rev. John H. Bonner, Jr., for the Camp Leach 
Committee, was granted permission to solicit a minimum 
of $3,000.00 for building purposes at Camp Leach for 
1946. 

A letter in regard to some changes in the parishes and 
missions in Hertford and Gates Counties was presented

APPENDIX "G" 

REPORT OF CHAIRMAN DIOCESAN ARMY AND 

NAVY COMMISSION 



Wilmington, N. C, February 6, 1946. 

Rev. J. Bert Webster, D. D. 
Army and Navy Division, 
Church Missions House, 
281 Fourth Avenue, 
New York 10, N. Y. 

My Dear Mr. Webster : 

I wrote you several days ago that you would hear from 
us before the time for your meeting. I am now sending 
you both our report for the past year and our askings for 
next year. 

We understand that our present appropriations will 
continue until May 1, 1946, subject, of course, to any 
changes that might become necessary and that our ask- 
ings for the year beginning May 1, 1946 will be consid- 
ered by your Committtee at the meeting to be held in 
New York Tuesday, February 12, 1946. 

Since August 1945, when the application of St. Ste- 
phen's, Goldsboro, was renewed, you have sent us $1,850.- 
00 quarterly. You need not send us the money for Golds- 
boro in the check this month. So many of the men have 
left Seymour Johnson Field that both the vestry and the 
woman worker have decided that, beginning February 1, 
1946, the work should be discontinued. 

For the year beginning May 1, 1946, we shall need 
$1,290.00 quarterly instead of $1,850.00 for work in the 
following fields: 

1. St. John's, Fayetteville, Discretionary Fund $ 120.00 

2. Christ Church, New Bern, worker 300.00 

3. St. Joseph's, Fayetteville, Dis. Fund 60.00 

4. White Churches in the Wilmington Area 



SIXTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 163 

1946 Report - Diocesan Army and Navy Commission 

Discretionary Fund 300.00 

5. St. Mark's Church, Wilmington 60.00 

6. St. Anne's, Jacksonville 450.00 



$1,290.00 



1 and 3: Fort Bragg is near Fayetteville. The offic- 
ers and men are served by St. John's, white, and St. Jo- 
seph's, colored. We are asking for the same discretion- 
ary funds for them. 

2: Our nearest church to the large Marine Base at 
Cherry Point is Christ Church, New Bern. Most of the 
men at Cherry Point visit New Bern and our church has 
cared for hundreds of them since the Base was estab- 
lished. Our Rector at New Bern, the Rev. C. E. Williams, 
feels that he must have the help of a woman worker to 
care for the large number of men who are constantly in 
New Bern. 

4: There are a number of churches in the Wilming- 
ton area — St- Andrew's, Wrightsville, All Saints', 
Carolina Beach; St. Philip's, Southport, St. Andrew's, 
Calabash and St. Philip's, Tar Landing, that need discre- 
tionary funds for work with Marines from Camp Le- 
jeune, men from Camp Davis and Coastguardsmen on 
the nearby beaches. Many of the families of officers and 
men live at Carolina and Wrightsville Beaches. 

5 : St. Mark's, Wilmington, has done good work for 
the colored service men by finding homes for them and 
serving meals. The Rector has cared for many of them 
in the rectory. He is asking for a small discretionary 
fund. 

6: The church at Jacksonville was built and a clergy- 
man secured with money appropriated by the Army and 
Navy Commission. The approoriation is for the salary 
of the Minister-in-charge, the Rev. F. N. Cox. It is the 
only Episcopal church near the New River Marine Base, 



164 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report - Diocesan Army and Navy Commission May 

the largest base in the country. When the church was 
built only two members of our church lived at Jackson- 
ville, but there- are now a fair number of civilian mem- 
bers and the services are attended by both officers and 
men of the Marine Base, including the commanding of- 
ficer. The work is growing but needs financial aid for 
the present. 

We appreciate help given us by the Army and Navy 
Commission and we hope that our present askings will 
be approved. 

Bishop Wright is away now but I shall ask him to go 
over this report and sign it, if it meets with his approv- 
al. 

Faithfully yours, 

WALTER R. NOE, 

Chairman Diocesan Army and Navy Commission. 

Approved : 

THOMAS H. WRIGHT, Bishop.

Report of Committee on the State of the Church May 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON STATE OF CHURCH 



The Committee on the State of the Church submits the fol- 
lowing report: 

A summary of the Parochial Reports reveals the following 
statistical information: The whole number of baptized is 11,113 
for the year 1946, an increase of 262 over 1945; total number of 
communicants, 8,877 an increase of 323 over last year; 338 persons 
were administered the sacrament of Holy Baptism in 1946 as com- 
pared with 303 persons in 1945; 336 persons were confirmed in 
1946, and increase of 37 over the preceding year; loss by death, 
77, a decrease of 17; loss by transfer, 232, an increase of 158; and 
loss by removal, 348, an increase of 116. These last two items 
showing a decided increase in numbers lost by transfer and removal 
may be explained, in part at least, by the general population trend 

in this section of the shate. 

Parochial reports indicate that there was a loss of 93 Church 
School teachers but an increase of 30 Church School pupils in 1946 
as compared with 1945 figures. 

Concerning the finances of the Diocese, the following infor- 
mation is gathered from the reports: 

Receipts reached an all time high in 1946 of $273, 967.77. The 
previous high of $244,615.08 was reached in 1929. Because of the 
depression, receipts dropped in 1933 to $112,159.07. 

As a result of the Nation-wide campaign, the givings to the 
General Church, the Diocese, and to other extra-parochial objectives 
reached the high point of $69,228.89 in 1921. In 1928 it had drop- 
ped to approximately $64,000.00. In 1934 it dropped to slightly 
more than $30,000.00. This has steadily increased until it has 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 

1947 Report of the Standing Committees 

reached an all time high in 1946 of $94, 223.00. This all time high 
was reached because of the Reconstruction and Advance Fund re- 
ceived during the year. 

Your committee believes that the most serious problem facing 
the Diocese of East Carolina today is the task of strengthening and 
developing the work among our brethren of the Negro race. With 
the loss by death of the Ven. R. I. Johnson during the past year 
our work in the Diocese has suffered a crippling blow. Other losses 
of Negro clergy by the Diocese in recent months makes imperative 
the re-manning' of the churches of the Colored Convocation im- 
mediately by competent clergy. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wm. B. Daniels, Jr., Chrm. 

The report of the Standing Committee was read by the Rev. 
John W. Hardy, Secretary, as follows:

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF PUBLICATION 
OF THE MISSION HERALD 

Diocese of East Carolina, 

At the convention of the diocese of East Carolina in 1946, a 
board of publication composed of five members was created and 
instructed to take over and publish the Mission Herald. On that 
committee the following were appointed: Rev. Jack R. Rountree, 
chairman, and the Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser, Jr., the Rev. John W. 
Hardy, the Rev. R. I. Johnson, and Mrs. E. M. McEachern. They

began their work under two definite convictions: xirst, tnac tut 
Mission Herald should be placed in every home in the diocese; and 
Second, that it should devote itself primarily to the publishing of 
the news of the diocese and of the Church at large. It was believed 
that acquainting the people with what is going on in the Church 
about them would tend to develop a feeling of family relationship 
which would bind them together into a real Fellowship possessing 
a spirit of mutual interest and concern, and that a co-operative 
spirit would develop that would result in furthering the carrying on 
of the Mission of the Church. 

The board felt that the membership of the Church would 
voluntarily support a paper that reported the happenings in their 
own and neighboring churches. It was also thought that the clergy 
and people would co-operate in helping the paper to succeed in 
securing and publishing the news. So in an adventure of faith 
the board started to work on that conviction. Mailing lists were 
solicited from the clergy, who were also asked to assist in gather- 
ing the news. The board decided to make the paper current by 
making the month of publication, the month of its appearance. The 
first issue went into more than three thousand homes, while the 
May issue reached over 4100 homes; all of the homes in the diocese 
of which the board of publication had information 

When the clergy learned that the management would not 
hold them financially responsible for sending the paper into all 
of the homes in their parishes, mailing lists were furnished. For 
this co-operation we are most appreciative. Response in sending 
in the news has not been as freely rendered as the board had an- 
ticipated. We are very grateful to those who have made it poss- 
ible to cover a large part of the news. 

It was necessary for the board to determine upon definite 
policy as to the nature of its activity. It was decided to feature 
principally the news of the diocese and of the Church, and to 
eliminate long articles, especially all discussional and theological 
or sermonic treaties. Poetry and literary essays had to be ex- 
cluded — as a policy — and space reserved for. items of news. It 
was felt that such teaching as might seem advisable could easily 
be carried in well prepared news items. Because of the tendency 
of wordiness on the part of some correspondents it has been neces- 
sary to edit many of the articles submitted. Some articles have 
had to be rejected because they were not properly prepared for 
publication. The Mission Herald staff has not the time to rewrite 
overly long articles. 

From the very beginning the staff was handicapped by the 



36 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of the Mission Herald May 

critical illness of the Ven. R. I. Johnson, whq was never able to 
meet with and advise them, especially about the service that we 
hoped to render to the negro churches. Mrs. E. M. McEachern 
served but a few months before she left the diocese. Mrs. Leonard 
Trueblood was appointed by the Woman's Auziliary to succeed 
Mrs. McEachern and has been a real help. Feeling the necessity 
for further assistance the staff elected the Rev. John C. Grainger 
as an associate editor, and he has been of real service in getting 
out the paper. Bishop Wright has been a source of help, en- 
couragement and real inspiration. 

It should be remembered that the entire staff of the Mission 
Herald is composed of men who are busy in carrying on the work 
of real active parishes and missions; and that the work of the 
paper is an extra task requiring a great deal of time. Further r 
more, no member of the staff receives one cent of compensation; 
on the contrary the work has involved considerable personal ex- 
pense to each one of them. , ; , ; 
We have carried on with the assurance that the diocese stood 
back of us, and was ready to guarantee us from any finincial 
embarrassment involved in meeting the expenses of publication. 
We do not feel that the staff should have to bear the burden of 
financing the paper, and would not be interested in continuing 
the work, without the asurance of the continued backing of the 
diocese. We are willing to carry on and do all within our power 
to make the paper a success, but we have not the time to develop 
a complete program for financing the paper. 

We are fully aware of the fact that we have not satisfied 
everybody — as many people have different ideas about what a 
paper should be. But we have consistently carried out our policy 
of getting out a newspaper of the work of the diocese and feel 
that we have done a fairly good job, with the co-operation that we 
have received. But we know that a lot of news that could have 
made interesting reading has not appeared, simply because no one 
took the trouble to send it in. 

The Rev. John W. Hardy, executive editor and business man- 
ager, has done a splendid piece of work in handling the financial 
end of the paper, and will make a complete financial report upon the 
completion of the general report. • '

1947 Committee on Canons 

The Rev. Mr. Hardy added to his report the fact that a number 
of the Parishes and missions had not sent him the list of their 
Church families and were thereby denying their parishioners the 
opportunity of reading the Mission Herald. 

Mr. John G. Bragaw stated that those Parishes and Missions 
which had not sent the lists of their Church families were the 
losers, and further added that the Committee had done an excellent 
job. 

Mr. F. D. Duncan moved and Mr. Junius D. Grimes seconded 
the motion that the thanks of the Convention be extended to the 
Board of Publicaion for their excellent work. Passed. 

The question of the Roll Call having been made by the Rev. 
Thomas P. Noe, Mr. W. G. Gaither moved and Mr. Junius D. Grimes 
seconded the motion that the check on attendance made by the 
Secretary be considered sufficient to replace the Roll Call. Carried- 

Mr. H. E. Rodgers for the Committee on Canons offered the 
following report:

RESOLVED that there be and is hereby created "The Foun- 
dation of the Episcopal Church of the Diocese of East Carolina." 

This foundation is created for the purpose of receiving from 
persons to be effective immediately or at a future fixed date or 
at death gifts of real estate and personal property from members 
of the Diocese of East Carolina and from members of other 
Dioceses of the Episcopal Church and from friends who are not 
members of the Episcopal Church, but who are interested in the 
work being carried on by the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of 
East Carolina or elsewhere and who are willing to give this work 
their financial support. Funds will be accepted where the donor 
makes an absolute gift and will also be accepted where the gift 
is subject to restrictions as to the purpose for which the gift may 
be used in and under the direction of the Diocese of East Carolina 
and also when the gift provides, that the principal may be expended 
or restricts the spending to the income from the gift. A donor 
may create an endowment in memory of his family or a friend. 

The operation of this foundation shall be under the control 
of the Executive Council of the Diocese of East Carolina and the 
Executive Council is authorized and empowered to solicit and re- 
ceive donations from any persons subject to the foregoing provi- 
sion, reserving to the Diocese the right to decline to accept any do- 
nation. 

The principal of the donation or the income therefrom, as may

by the donor that advances the religious life of the Diocese of 
East Carolina, and if the purpose for which said principal or in- 
come is not designated, then the Executive Council of the Diocese 
of East Carolina is to determine the purpose or purposes for 
which said fund shall be used. 

The Executive Council shall annually make a report to the 
Diocesan convention showing the names of the several trusts or 
endowments under their control under this canon giving the names 
of the trusts, the amount of the funds and the manner in which 
they are invested and the disbursements made and the purpose for 
which any part of said trusts have been disbursed. 

That this section be sub-section (11) of Section 1 of Canon 9.

new clergymen in the Diocese. 

The Bishop also welcomed the Rev. Edgar R. Neff. 

The Rev. William B. Daniels, Jr., rector of the host Parish 
invited the Convention to Luncheon in the Parish House. 

The request of St. Mark's Church, Roxobel to be admitted as 
a Parish was presented and was referred to the Committee on New 
Parishes, the Rev. Alexander Miller, chairman. Since there were 
no delegates from Roxobel, action was deferred until the next 
Convention. 

Mr. Bruce Bateman made a verbal report for the Committee 
on Camp Leach evaluation and asked for more time to make a 
complete report. 

Report of the Trustees of the Diocese was presented by title 
by Mr. Robert Strange (See Appendix "C"). 

The Bishop presented the Rev. Julius A. Pratt, rector of Grace 
Church, Whiteville, as a new clergyman in the Diocese. 

The Rev. James F. Ferneyhough made a verbal report on the 
Department of Religious Education, emphasising the Clergy-Adult 
Conference at Camp Leach and the teachers Training Institutes 
for the coming seaso'n. (For written report see Appendix "D"). 

The Bishop presented Dr. Richard G. Stone, president of St. 
Mary's School, Raleigh, who made a report for that school. 



46 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report on St. Mary's May 

REPORT TO THE EAST CAROLINA DIOCESAN CONVENTION 
BY THE PRESIDENT OF ST. MARY'S : 

Saint Mary's School and Junior College began the academic 
year 1946-47 under a new president, Richard G. Stone. Mrs. Ernest 
Cruikshank who had served with distinction for fourteen years re- 
tired at the close of the 1945-46 session. 

During the school year one meeting of the Board of Trustees, 
and several meetings of the Executive Committee of the Board were 
held. The Rev. Maurice Clark, D.D., a member of the Board from 
the Diocese of Upper South Carolina, died during the year. Mr. 
N. C. Green, of Willliamston, North Carolina, President E. M. 
Gwathmey of Converse College, Spartanburg, South Carolina, and 
the Rev. Messrs. Alfred P. Chambliss, of Rock Hill, S. C, and the 
Rev. John Grainger of Goldsboro, N. C, were elected by the re- 
spective conventions to the Board. 

Saint Mary's lost by death February 22, 1947, the services of 
her effecient business manager, Mr. E. F. Stoughton. This posi- 
tion will not be filled. The board, on recommendations of the 
President, created a new position, Dean of Students. Business 
functions will be performed by the President with the assistance of 
the business office staff. 

There were 320 full time students registered at the school this 
year. Of this number 232 were in residence. The school was forc- 
ed to decline applications from about 100 prespective students due 
to lack of dormitory space. By shifts of living puarters in the 
house occupied by the chaplain this year it will be possible for 
about 242 students to be accommodated during the year 1947-48. 
A waiting list was established early in January, 1947, and at 
present many more students are applying than can be accepted. 

The sharp rise in food, labor, and material cost since last 
summer forced the Executive Committee to increase the general 
rates for the 1947-48 session. This step was taken reluctantly but 
was necessary to avoid indebtedness. Saint Mary's has a very 
small endowment which invested at present rates does not exist, 
to any extent, in paying the costs of operation. The school feels 
forced to maintain its standard in equipment and maintenance even 
if the general charges have to be raised to do so. 

Twenty-five thousand dollars, a gift of Mr. James A, Gray, of 
Winston-Salem, was added to the endowment fund during the year. 
A number of smaller gifts were made to the Centennial Fund, which 
is being expended for the improvement program now in progress. 
Out of this Centennial Fund a new heating plant and hot water 
system has been erected. The Kitchen has been entirely renovated 
and new epuipment installed. Considerable campus work in the 
form of a paved drive and new walks has been accomplished. 

Respectfully submitted, RICHARD G. STONE, President

Mr. Junius D. Grimes moved that the report be received, that 
the Budget be adopted, and the new basis of apportionment be 
also adopted. This was seconded and carried. 

The Bishop expressed his gratitude to Mr. Ruffin and to Mr. 
Robert Strange for their collaboration in getting up the Budget and 
new basis of apportionment. 

The Rev. Edgar R. Neff gave a spirited address on the con- 
dition of the Church and its determination to go forward. 

The Convention was so stirred by this address that Mr. Robert 
Strange made the following motion, which was seconded and passed: 

"Resolved that the Diocese of East Carolina approve the Ac- 
tion of the National Council in inaugurating a plan of Evangelism 
and approves the use of the Radio and other media in furthering 
these plans." 



REPORTS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL, NEW BERN 

The following Reports were made by Mr. Issac H. Smith, Trea- 
surer of Good Shepherd Hospital and Mr. Ossie T. Faison, Superin- 
tendent: 

The Good Shepherd Hospital in New Bern, North Carolina 
was conceived in the mind of its founder. Rev. R. I. Johnson, in 
1922, when after a disastrous fire, St. Cyprians, miraculously spar- 
ed, was used as an emergency hospital. Mr. Johnson not only gave 
up his church to relieve those disaster victims whose need for 
hospitalization became apparent but also became Vice-Chairman 
for the Red Cross Disaster Committee which quickly formed to meet 
the emergency. During the use of the church as an emergency 
hospital, among the several babies born was one whose name be- 
came "Cyprian." Cyprian is now a man, perhaps with a family 
and when he visits the city he attends the church of his faith — 
St. Cyprians. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 51 



1947 Good Shepherd Hospital 



There was no question as to the need of a hospital for negroes 
in New Bern. Facts gathered by reliable surveys disclosed by the 
records indicated the lack of hospital beds and facilities. The 
national ration then was one bed to every two thousand Negroes 
in East Carolina one bed to every ten thousand Negroes. 

The Diocese of East Carolina under Bishop Darst gave en- 
couragement and sanction to the building of a hospital. Arch- 
deacon Johnson and the Rev. W. R. Noe set out to find the neces- 
sary funds. After a period of several years, with the approval of 
the National office, trips were made to Northern centers. In 
short, $25,000 was given by the convocation of Chester, in Pennsyl- 
vania, in memory of Dean Benj. N. Byrd. Substantial amounts 
were available from the Duke Foundation and other sources. Thus 
finally, construction began. 

In comparatively recent years the Federal Govt with its PWA 
facilities built a wing which gave additional beds, ward and a much 
needed nurses home. 

No opportunity which would have aided and helped perpetuate, 
the Good Shepherd Hospital seemed to have escaped these great 
leaders. They intended it truly to be a "House of Healing and 
Hope." Those of us who love this great church of ours know that 
its extensive work is with all people near and far 

Are we not proud of the fact that the churches hospital work 
in East Carolina came long before the state and nation were pre- 
pared to do anything tangible about the health of its people or 
the lack of hospital beds and centers of healing? 

Now that those who started this wonderful institution are no 
longer with us, a great challenge and a tremendous opportunity 
exists for all of us to see that the institution continues in a greater 
and bigger way in the healing of the sick and afflicted who are 

ever with us. 



52 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of the Good Shepherd May 

After almost ten years, buildings and equipment begin to show 
need of renovation and replacement; such is our condition. We in- 
vite you to stop by when possible. We solicit your interest and 
prayers To the splendid ladies of the Wloman's Auxiliary, we 
express appreciation for all you have done. To the Bishop who has 
been a constant friend of the hospital from the very beginning, we 
ask Divine Guidance in the acceptance of these problems along 
with the many other duties his great office presents. 

"Look down in Thy pity Lord on suffering humanity. 

Touch their wounds, their hurts assuage, alleviate their 
agony . . . Friends and enemies united: Kindred in the pains 

they share. No man stands outside the circle of Thy mercy 
and Thy care. 

Bless the nurses and the doctors. Give them all the strength 
they ask. Grant them courage and endurance for their great 
and noble task. Instruments of Christ's compassion in a 

world of pain and strife . . . Healing, helping and restoring 
giving hope and saving life. 

— ISSAC H. SMITH 



REPORT OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL TO THE 
ANNUAL CONVENTION 

Daniel Webster started a lot of trouble for lawyers when he 
said, "Darmouth is a small college, but there are those who love 
her." I would like to start something when I say, "The Good Shep- 
herd is a small Institution, but there are those, of us, who love her." 

For almost nine years the Good Shepherd Hospital has been 
carrying on the mission for which it was created — to bring the 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 53 



1947 Report of the Good Shepherd 



ministry of healing in a larger measure to a portion of the 300,000 
Negroes in this Diocese, in the name of our Lord and His Church. 
All of us who have been in close contact with Good Shepherd Hos- 
pital, know that there has been a wealth of satisfaction, and that 
the institution has gotten under way so well and has met in such 
a splendid way, such a large measure of the need for this kind of 
service to, humanity. 

During 1946, we gave only 687 free days of care. These days 
were made possible by the many small donations from friends, here 
at home, and other parts of the country have come in to help us 
stem the tide. Among these friends, who have stood by us are 
branches of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of East Carolina- 
Besides the above mentioned thing, we have received many other 
gifts, which were timely and helpful. 

The hospital staff served a total of 8,135 patients days during 
1946 — 7,154 of these were classified as full pay days; 882 — part pay 
days; 99 — free pay days. 

There are times when things at Good Shepherd Hospital look 
dark — but with the alertness of our Board of Trustees and behind 
us all has been the sympathetic encouragement of our Bishop, 
whose prayers and good wishes have made us feel we just had to 
get along somehow. 

Today, after nine years of struggling, with many discouraging 
problems, with the enemy sometimes advancing even into our own 
forces, we can say, "Here we are, an Institution that is upholding 
the best and highest that we know in the world. This is an In- 
stitution equipped to fight in this modern warfare of diseases." 
Let us continue to support it.

54 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report on the University of the South May 



REPORT ON THE UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH 

Mr. David T. Oates, Trustee of the University of the South made 
the following report: 

Bishop Wright and members of this Convention: 

The true test of civilization is not the census, nor the size of 
the cities, nor the crops — no, but the kind of man the country turns 
out. When Emerson wrote these lines nearly a hundred years ago, 
America was groping for spiritual values that would overshine 
and outbid a growing faith in size, power and number — a material- 
ism that seemed to him to be our substitute for the ideal of individ- 
ual human worth. Also, at this time, nine Southern Bishops meet- 
ing at an Episcopal Convention saw the needs, as Emerson did, 
of establishing a University to bring out the Christian character of 
the young men of their day. So, it was that idea of the Uni- 
versity of the South was born in the year 1856. 

The cornerstone of the University was laid on October 10, 1860, 
at Sewanee, Tenn., on a plateau in the Cumberland Mountains, and 
since that day the University of the South has been popularly 
known as Swanee. There is again a need to rededicate ourselves 
as our fore-fathers did to the American ideal of justice, dignity and 
the opportunity for the individual. We must plot a clear course 
out of the maelstrom of conflict, ignorance and suspicion that en- 
gulfs us. We must spread and strengthen our ideas of tolerance, 
understanding and fair play. Our philosophy and way of living 
did not burst forth full grown. They became a reality slowly 
through the devotion, the labor and philanthropy of our fore- 
fathers. Our preachers and teachers, our workers and business- 
men, our farmers and scholars built them piece by piece. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 55 
1947 Report on University of the South 

In the past ten years our philosophers have taken a drubbing, 
the like of which the world has seldom seen. Not only the Ameri- 
can ideal, but the humanistic core of western thought have been 
trampled in the mire, and flung contemptuously aside by the wor- 
shippers of power. To rescue our modern America from the illness 
of spirit into which it has fallen, to give back to our people, partic- 
ularly our youth, the ideals and opportunities lost in war, to en- 
noble "the kind of a man the country turns out," the University of 
the South needs your help, in securing adequate endowment, and 
the funds for completing All Saint's Chapel, building the Gailor 
Memorial, which is to be the University dining hall and commons, 
and constructing the buildings necessary for a college of five 
hundred, a theological school of seventy-five, and an Academy of 
two-hundred and fifty. These two objectives are necessary. They 
must be attained if Sewanee is to live and play her part in the 
field of education. The time is at hand for Sewanee to do those 
things that have been left undone over the years. 

Several years ago Bishop Darst appointed me a trustee of the 
University of the South. I had never been to Sewanee, so last 
year, when I received a letter asking me to attend a meeting of the 
Board of Trustees, I decided to go and see for myself just what 
our University was. I had visited many Universities throughout 
the Eastern part of the United States — Amherst, Williams, Col- 
gate, Columbia, Harvard and Yale, as well as many of our Southern 
Colleges, but Sewanee on the mountain impressed me with its dig- 
nity, solitude, beauty, and enchantment of the past that is only 
felt in a hallowed place. Here conditions are almost ideal for the 



56 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report on University of the South May 

pursuit of learning, for growth of mind and spirit, for enrichment 
of personality, for development of nobility of character. The Un- 
iversity of the South regards as indispensible to the realization of 
its ideals of cultured and useful manhood, systematic courses of 
instruction in the Bible. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 57 



1947 Report of the Woman's Auxiliary 

It has always been my idea that the companionship and the 
friendleness that a small college can give to a young man is one 
of the greatest assets to his education. As is particularly noticed 
at Sewanee by the custom of the Dean entertaininng every student 
in his home at some time during each year. 

I hope some day soon that every member of this convention 
will visit Sewanee, and see and feel the friendliness and kindness 
that is immediately shown to strangers, that is so lacking in many 
places today. I am sure that you who go will want to return as I 
do to this beautiful University with its buildings of artistic design, 
constructed of stone from the mountain on which they rest. The 
campus is one of the loveliest in America with its winding walks, 
green grass, and majestic oaks. Close by is the mountain's edge 
with enchanting views of the valley below. 

On the top of the mountain, just off the campus, overlooking 
the valley there is a huge cross that can be seen for miles, and is 
lighted at night, standing as a beacon to all, and casting its gleam 
over the mountain side. This cross was built by the young men 
of the University as a memorial to their comrads of World War I 
Our beloved Bishop Wright helped lay these stones, when he was 
a student, and I hope that our people of East Carolina will help 
keep this light burning as a symbol of love for their Bishop, and 
interest in the young men of our nation. As a tribute to Sewanee's 
men of World War II, the tower on All Saint's Chapel will be me- 
morial. Surely, there could be no more fitting way of showing 
respect to the boys of Sewanee, who gave their lives, in order that 
other young men might have the education that our fore-father's 
intended them. So, Bishop Wright and members of this Conven- 
tion, I would like to beg of this convention the raising of our allot- 
ment from $500 a year to $850. 

Finally, as there is no true progress without a goal, the Uni- 
versity of the South states this to be the goal and objective of its 
effort in any and all of its deparments : the realization of the King- 
dom of God, which is the Kingdom of love, as interpreted in the 
life and teaching of Jesus Christ. 

Mrs. W. O. S. Southerland made the following report: 

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 1947 

Rt. Rev. Father in God and Members of the Convention: 

Once again it becomes my duty and privilege to make an An- 
nual Report of the work of the Woman's Auxiliary in this Diocese. 



58 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of the Women's Auxiliary May 



In our Church's Prayer Book sometime between 1400 and 1500 
we find this petition in the Litany: ''From ghoulies and ghosties 
and things that go woof in the night, Good Lord deliver us." One 
has only to sit in a Diocesan Convention today and hear what the 
Church is doing in the Community, the Diocese, the Nation and the 
World to see how very much the Church has advanced since the 
days when this petition was said by its members. 

The work of the Woman's Auxiliary has also made many 
strides. I would like to quote from the address made by Bishop 
Thomas Atkinson at the convention in St. John's Church, Wilming- 
ton, May 1874: "I wish to direct yaur attention to a subject which 
may not be ready for immediate action on your part, but which de- 
serves the thoughtful consideration of the Diocese as a unit, as well 
as of ourselves as individuals, that is, the expediency of providing 
for the organized services of women as helpers in the work of the 
Church. The general sentiment of thoughtful men, both in Eng- 
land and in this country, is clearly reaching the conclusion that 
by the neglect of such services Ave have shown ourselves inattentive 
to the teaching of Scriptures and antiquity, that we have thus 
buried a talent committed to our charge, and that, as it has been 
expressed by another, the Church has thus become maimed in one 
of her hands. The General Convention at its last meeting consid- 
ered this subject most favorably, and appointed a joint committee 
of the two houses to report on it to that body when it shall meet 
again. The subject will then, no doubt, be acted on, and it is much 
to be desired that this Convention should come to some determined 
conclusion in regard to it; and if it should agree with that general 
sentiment of the Church, of which I have already spoken, that it 
should as soon as possible take measures to give the sentiment a 
practical shape." The committee appointed to consider that por- 
tion of the address of Bishop Atkinson referring to woman's work, 
respectfully reported: "Resolved: That it be recommended to the 
several Rectors of Parishes to avail themselves so far as practic- 
able of the organized work of devout women." 

When you hear the report of the work done by the women of 
this Diocese during 1946 I feel sure that you will agree that con- 
siderable progress has been made in Women's work since the Bishop 
made this plea and that the Church is richer for their organization. 

Perhaps the best idea of the work can be obtained by referring 
to each department and showing its contribution to the work of the 
whole. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 59 



1947 Report of the Women's Auxiliary 



Two splendid auxiliary Convocational meetings were held in 
the Fall with the Rev. Wm. J. Gordon Jr. of Point Hope, Alaska, 
as our missionary speaker. From the offerings of these two Con- 
vocations we had the joy of making a gift to Mr. Gordon of nearly 
$350 for his work. 

The work of the Department of Christian Education has gone 
forward steadily. Reports from many parishes show marked im- 
provement in quality and quantity of work. The Educational De-, 
partment underlies all the work of the Woman's Auxiliary. We 
realize that unless our women know the need and the way to meet 
that need they will not care. And so, in addition to the study of 
the Bible, the Prayer Book, Church History and other studies of 
this kind, the women have studied the Mission of the Church. We 
are certain that if the men of the Church were as well-informed 
about the mission fields of the Church as the women, there would 
be no such thing as deficits. A great deal of material on the 
General Convention and the Triennial Meeting was sent out in the 
Auxiliary Packet. Through this packet the women have the op- 
portunity of learning not only Auxiliary work but the work of the 
whole Church in the whole world. Nineteen hundred copies of the 
Auxiliary Manual were distributed so that each woman might have 
a copy. 

Under the Department of Christian Social Relations, the wo- 
men have made real progress in studying the causes and effects 
of delinquency in their communities and have kept in close touch 
with social agencies, women of other churches, the schools and 
other interested citizens in an effort to formulate some preventive 
measure against crime among young people. Quite a few recrea- 
tional projects for teen age groups have developed during the 
year as a result of this interest and cooperation. Under this de- 
partment, the auxiliaries have distributed 2,965 used garments to 
the needy. New clothing and food valued at $2,152 were given to 
community institutions and relief. Eight hundred and thirty dol- 
lars in cash was contributed to the Thompson Orphanage besides 
used clothing, Christmas gifts and contributions to the allowance 
fund. Building and Loan shares are carried by four auxiliaries 
to be given to children when they graduate from the Orphanage. 
Many auxiliaries contributed to the Presiding Bishop's Fund for 
World Relief and to the Reconstruction and Advance Fund. The 
total value of Christmas boxes filled by auxiliaries for homes and 
abroad amounted to $1,816. Jails and county homes and hospitals 



60 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of the Woman's Auxiliary May 

were visited. Every auxiliary reports Red Cross work, assistance 
with such drives as Infantile Paralysis, Cancer, Tuberculosis, Red 
Cross and crippled children. 

Under the Supply Department, the auxiliaries filled allotments 
sent out by the National Department amounting to $828. From 
this department, money and gifts totalling $1,087 were sent to 
Thompson Orphanage. Within the Diocese the Good Shepherd 
Hospital, Galilee Mission and the Inland Waterway Missions re- 
ceived supplies, old and new clothing and money valued at $985. 
Various missions outside the diocese received a total of $332. 

The outstanding work of the Promotion Department last year 
was assisting the Board of the Mission Herald in the reorganiza- 
tion of that paper. This included numerous meetings, getting from 
each Parish a family list, and gathering news each month that 
would be of interest to the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Through the Church Periodical Club, the women of the Diocese 
have sent out 22 magazines by subscription, 54 magazines remailed, 
9,846 magazines distributed to hospitals and other institutions, 
465 books added to libraries, numerous leaflets, newspaper sup- 
plements, greeting cards, pictures, games and scrapbooks. 

Through our Personnel Chairman young people in the Dio- 
cese have had Church Work presented to them from both a pro- 
fessional and volunteer standpoint. 

Last year our United Thank Offering came from every parish 
and mission in the Diocese where there is an auxiliary, and from 
several places where there are only three or four women and no 
organization. The United Thank Offering of the women of this 
Diocese for the year 1946 was $6,776.19. 

I am especially happy to report an increase in membership 
in the auxiliary — quite a large increase. This is due in great part 
to the fact that some of the auxiliaries have adopted the Unified 
Plan and it always seems to create enthusiasm and interest. 

During 1946 the Woman's Auxiliary contributed (in actual 
cash) twenty-eight thousand dollars. This included the United 
Thank Offering. We have paid two hundred dollars toward the 
salary of the student worker at the college in Greenville — $150 for 
her discretionary fund also. Fifty dollars to the United Youth 
Program — $25 for training negro youth in the diocese $100 each 
to China & Brazil, $400 to Liberia, $200 to Alaska. We have 
contributed to the American Church Institute for Negroes, Work 
Among the Blind and Deaf, Rec. and Advance Fund— $50 for im-

for a boys school in the Philippines and many other gifts too num- 
erous to mention. 

The Auxiliary stresses worship first of all — we stress study, 
service and sacrificial giving. 

It is my earnest prayer that the women of this Diocese will 
realize the University of the Church, that they will try to see the 
viewpoint of peoples of other countries and think of Christian Edu- 
cation around the world rather than just in America — that they 
will gain a vision of the Ecumenical Church — that they will be con- 
vinced that mission work must be related to every aspect of life — 
that they will have a new fellowship and a new sensitiveness to the 
needs of the whole world — that they will learn to struggle to have 
a more sacrificial and Christian spirit and to develop a spirit of 
out-going love. That they will realize that the Church is one 
Church, God given, not man-made and that as God gave us the 
ideal so will He give us the power. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF YOUTH 

The Rev. John H. Bonner, Jr., made the following report for the 
Department of Youth: 

To the Members of the Convention: 

The following, I submit as the report of the Department of 
Youth for the year 1946. Periodic reports of this Department 
have been made at each meeting of the Executive Council as is 
customary during the year. 

This Department has as its responsibility the promotion of 
work among Young People in every Parish and Mission in the Dio- 
cese. At the same time, this Department serves as a clearing 
house for all ideas and programs passed down by the National 
Division of Youth and the Provincial Youth Commission. Miss 
Mary Ann Campbell, of St. Peter's Church, Washington, who is 
chairman of the Youth Commission in this Diocese, is a member 
of both the National and Provincial Youth Commissions. This. is 
the first time this Diocese has ever had a young person as a mem- 
ber of both the National and Provincial groups. 



62; DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Department of Youth May 

This Department sets forth as its own program five major 
emphases in which every young person in the Diocese is given an 
opportunity to participate. These majors are: (1) The Fea§t 
of Lights (An Epiphany Pageant held in the Parish on the Sun- 
day nearest the Feast of the Epiphany); (2) The Mid- Winter All 
Youth Rally (held last year in St. Mary's Church, Kinston with 
over fifty young people present; (3) The Nationwide Corporate 
Communion (held during the month of April with participation on 
the Parochial basis); (4) The All Youth Conference (held at Camp 
Leach during August when two representatives of each Parish and 
Mission are appointed by each clergyman to attend this special con- 
ference for the development of leadership); (5) Youth Sunday 
(held on the 3rd Sunday in October with a special service in each 
Parish in the morning and District meetings in the Diocese in the 
afternoon). The major work of the Department during 1946 cen- 
tered around these events. We are encouraged with the fine re- 
sponse that has been encountered throughout the Diocese. Already 
this year a tremendous increase has been noted in the number now 
participating in this program. 

This part of our work though is only a small portion of what 
we are trying to do for our young people. The Diocesan Organiza- 
tion for young people in the Diocese is the Young People's Ser- 
vice League. The Youth Department seeks in every way to aid in 
increasing the work of the Leagues. Two new leagues were start- 
ed by the Department last year and several were reorganized. At 
the present time there are over twenty organized young people's 
groups in the Diocese. As Chairman of this Department it has 
been my privilege to visit in a large number of Parishes and Mis- 
sions during the past year working with and talking to the young 
people. To further keep in touch with our young people, there is 
a representative on the Department from each of the eight Dioces- 
an Districts which were set up to give us a key young person in. 
each part of the Diocese. 

Financially the Department is supported from the Diocesan 
Budget. The following financial statement is given for 1946. 



Receipts: 

Balance 1945 $239.31 

Diocese : 300.00

ber 30, 1946. This money is being held to defray the expenses of 
one of the young people who will attend the National Youth Con- 
vention in San Francisco in 1949. 

This Department asks of the Diocese for 1947 $450.00. This 
is asked to maintain the following Budget.

The difference in this budget and the amount asked of the 
Diocese is the surplus in existence on December 31, 1946. 

The Department appreciates the continued support of this Con- 
vention. I earnestly believe that we are doing a good job now with 
the young people of the Diocese. With your prayers and continued 
support, I am sure that we shall continually achieve great reward 
from working with these young servants of our Master's Vine- 
yard. Our Young People have as their motto these words. "To 
Know the Christ and Seek to make Him known." Responding to 
this call as we pray that they shall in youth, will mean for us all 
an enduring world in the future.

Nominating Committee May 

Mr. W. M. Atkinson made his report as Chairman of the Nominat- 
ing Committee which was adopted by the Convention. 



The Rev. Richard C. Sturgis gave the following report of his work 
as Archdeacon of the Wilmington District: 

I am often asked, "What is an archdeacon?" Well, in short, 
it is the Bishop's missionary in a certain area of the Diocese. 
Our Bishop appointed me to be the archdeacon of the Wilmington 
Convocation. I have been called everything from an "archdemon" 
to an Archbishop so in the course of time I have been accustomed 
to any name or title. 

I had the supervision of the following churches on assuming 
my duties last October, and they are as follows: Wrightsville 
Sound, Southport, Tar Landing, Burgaw, Atkinson, Carolina Beach, 
Whiteville, Warsaw, Faison, Gaus Landing and Calabash, making 
a total of thirteen. At the present time this lineup has been 
changed, Faison has been taken over by the new Rector of the 
Church in Clinton, Warsaw at the present time is not active and the 
Rev. Mr. Pratt on assuming the rectorship of the church in White- 
ville now has supervision of Gaus Landing and Calabash. The 
original total of thirteen has been reduced to nine. 

With the aid of fifteen fine laymen in Wilmington, whom 
Bishop Wright had organized before I assumed my duties we are 
now having regular services in all of the churches except Burgaw 
and Atkinson. They have monthly services but it is hoped this 
situation can be remedied in the near future. 

I would like to set forth six objectives we are working towards 
in each of these churches and to list some of the things that have 
been acomplished with brief comments. 

(1) The institution of regular services: Northwest is a good 
example where this has proven most beneficial. For a period of 
29 years Northwest had been accustomed to only one service per 
month, since October of last year they have been having regular 
Sunday services at a stated hour, atendance has improved, finances 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 65 

1947 Report by Archdeacon 

have become less of a problem and much work has been done on 
the physical structure of the church as these pictures will testify. 

(2) Each church on a firm financial basis: Contribute towards 
the Archdeacons salary and meet their apportionment. Each mis- 
sion has paid a portion of his apportionment and all are in a posi- 
tion at this time to meet the entire assessment. These eight 
churches are shouldering 64% of my salary and it is my hope by 
this fall they can shoulder an additional amount that should be 
beyond 80%. This job was created in a sense by your Bishop and 
Diocesan Treasurer as an act of faith and the above figures can 
justify their faith in these scattered churches. At the present time 
the Diocese is paying $90.00 per month of a total salary of $250.00. 

(3) Repair Physical Property of the Churches: Atkinson is a 
good example of what can happen when services are held only 
occassionally over a period of ten years. Tis picture shows a roof 
in bad repair and a steeple that is about ready to topple over. This 
steeple has been repaired, a new composition roof has been put on 
and plans are now underway to paint it and install a satisfactory 
heating system. This congregation has 16 communicants and bids 
well to raise about $900.00 this year for general improvements 
and current expenses. St. Andrews has a beautifully landscaped 
yard and a marl driveway. Plans are underway for other needed 
improvements. St. Philips, Southport, has funds on hand to build 
a parish house when conditions permit. 

(4) Some organization in each mission. A Bishop's committee 
has been appointed or elected in each church. Plans are under- 
way for a Woman's -Auxiliary but it is still in the making. 

(5) To make pastoral calls and know the communicants. In 
some of these towns visits from Episcopal clergymen have been 
very few. 

(6) To organize confirmation classes, baptize etc. In the 
course of the year where practicable to conduct a mission. Two 
have been held for a week's duration and two more are now in the 
process of being set up in the near future. 



66 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report by Archdeacon May 

May I express to our Bishop and his predecessor, Bp. Darst 
my undying gratitude for their fine spirit of counsel and advice 
which has been of untold value to me in this new field of endeavor. 
To the Reverend T. P. Noe for his helpfulness in steering me 
around the new field and our Diocesan Treasurer, Mr. Robert 
Strange for his kind expressions of confidence, patience and help- 
fulness at all times. To the Diocesan office, Miss Ann Barnwell, 
Miss Harriett Burgess and Miss Peggy Moore for their kindness 
and aid in simplyfying my work. To the fifteen layreaders in 
Wilmington for their spirit of loyalty and devotion to our 
church and their splendid cooperation and willingness and without 
it the job could not be accomplished. Last, but not least to Miss 
Jettie Odell and Miss Jocelyn Gordon who are devoting their time, 
talents and consecration to our work in the inland waterway mis- 
sions. Their helpful attitude and assistance has been a source of 
inspirtion to me on all oceassions. 

Contacts around the Diocese leave me with many thoughts but 
one is always paramount in my mind. Our rural missions and 
parishes have given our city parishes many fine leaders. To re- 
lax our efforts is this direction would be a sad and costly mistake. 
We must become a rural church if we are to grow consistently in 
the years to come. Wherever I go I find a ready response to the 
churches appeal and with the proper work there is promise of a rich 
harvest in the years ahead. There is a fine spirit of optimism in this 
Diocese and we are blessed with fine Episcopal leadership. Work- 
ing together and with far sighted vision there are new frontiers 
in this Diocese of East Carolina. Let us rise to meet the task. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Richard L. Sturgis

SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 67 
1947 Report on Camp Leach 

REPORT ON CAMP LEACH 

The Rev. John H. Bonner, Jr. Business Manager of Camp Leach, 
made the following report on Camp Leach: 

Herein is my report on the operations of the Diocesan Camp 
at Camp Leach, covering the period October 15, 1945 to September 
25, 1946. As in previous reports, I will make the following sub- 
divisions: 

I — ^otal Expenditures 
II — Camp Operation 
III — Camp Attendance 
IV — Camp Leach Debt 
V — Capital Account 
VI — Needs and Recommendations 

This indeed has been a very difficult year and it is with a 
great deal of regret that I report to you on the succeeding pages 
the very unpleasant news that we have sustained for the first time 
in several years a financial loss. Not only did we use our 1944-45 
balance of $605.41 but we had to borrow an additional $1,000.00 
from the Diocese of which only $301.75 is left, and that portion 
very definitely ear-marked. I shall try to show in a more detailed 
way, the manner in which this loss occurred. I did though, want 
you to know from the beginning that we can't be too optimistic 
about the year's work. 

On the other hand, I believe with all my heart, that the camp 
is recognized today by more people in the Diocese than at any 
time in its history. Every camp and conference this summer was 
I am sure a spiritual success. From the time the Adults came in 
on June 9th.,imtil the Clergy left this morning, we have had many 
great experiences, that have indeed strengthened our spiritual 
convictions. The Directors and staff did a magnificent job and if 
there is any praise for the work done here this summer, it should 
be given to them. They did a noble job, one that will live long in 
the memories of those of us who had the privilege of being at 
Camp Leach in 1946. 

Now on to the business at hand:

SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 69 

1947 Report on Camp Leach 

There are several small accounts which have not as yet been 
paid since bills for them have not been rendered. The expenses of 
the Clergy conference just completed will be reported in next year's 
account. 

The actual balance in the bank as of this date is $312.75. The 
difference is due to the fact that three checks, drawn in 1944 have 
never been presented at the bank for payment. 



ANALYSIS OF EXPENDITURES: 

A— 

CAMP OPERATION: Of the amount reported as income $8099.48 
was the designated amount for the operation of the camp. This 
included $7529.00 from camp fees, $500.00 from the Diocese to be 
used to subsidize the Adult Conference, and $70.48 as rebates for 
bad checks, telephone calls, and the balance in the Petty Cash ac- 
count. Of Jhe total amount reported for expenses incurred, $8847.17 
was spent in the direct operation of the camp for this fiscal year. 
In this category the Camp loss this year $749.69. 

B— 

CAPITAL ACCOUNT: As in the last two years we again show 
a loss in this account. Unfortunately, we cannot say this year 
though, that it has been made up through operations. At the be- 
ginning of this fiscal year $312.15 of last year's surplus credited 
to the Capital account. We received from the Parishes and Mis- 
sions this year $1490.00. We have spent in permanent improve- 
ments to the camp property this year $2395.83. Thus in this ac- 
count we report a loss which amounts to $583.68. 



DIOCESE: We credited from last year's surplus $76.72 to the 
Diocesan account since the monies received were technically ear- 
marked to take care of two substantial debts. The amount men- 
tioned above was the surplus after those debts had been paid. In 
February of this year we borrowed an additional $1000.00 from 
the Diocese. This summer we also received $500.00 which is the 
item in the Diocesan Budget for Camp Leach. The latter amount 
has been used in the operation of the Camp. The loan was used to 
take care of the losses incurred in the Operation and Capital ac- 
counts. 



70 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report on Camp Leach May 

D— 

CANTEEN: From last year's surplus $62.34 was credited to this 
account. During the year $920.83 was taken in at the canteen. 
When we consider the fact that spending there is limited, this is 
a very substantial figure. We paid out from the canteen for 
purchases $756.47. There is a balance then of $226.70 in this 
account which must be placed in the operational fund. 

E— 

OFFERINGS: By action of this committee, offerings received at 
Camp from all services must be set aside for definite religious 
purposes. The amount carried over in this account from 1944 & 
1945 was $154.25. The amount received this year is $111.95. Thus 
the present amount set aside for religious purposes is $266.20. Un- 
less this committee designates a purpose for its use, this amount 
will continue on into the next year. 

F— 

PROVINCIAL ASSESSMENTS: By a resolution adopted at the 
last meeting of this Committee, a tax of 25 cents per camper was 
to be added to the registration fee of each camper as our part 
in the support of the Provincial Department of Christian Educaion. 
The amount collected for that purpose this year is $73.50. This a- 
mount has not been paid as yet but will be sent shortly to the Treas- 
urer of this Province. 

This then is a summary of our yearly financial condition: 

Debits : Credits : 

1044-45 Surplus $ 650.46 

Camp Operation , $747.69 

Capital Account 593.68 

Canteen 226.70 

Offerings 266.20 

Provincial Assessment 73.50 

Diocesan Balance (1945) 76.72 

Diocesan Loan (February 1946) 1000.00 

Totals $1341.37 $1643.12 

Thus the balance as reported is $301.75. But a close examina- 
tion of this table will show us that it is balance in name only, for 
all of it is designated, as to its definite use. 

*The Surplus given above is not added with the credit account, 
as it has been divided in the amounts given there. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 



1947 Report on Camp Leach 

II— CAMP OPERATION 

A— 

SALARIES: This item was considerably increased this year be- 
cause of the increase given the caretaker. Our estimated budget 
for this item was $1800.00. We actually spent $1888.60. It was 
divided as follows: 

Caretaker ._ $ 500.00 

Business Manager 163.10 

Cooks 589.50 

Secretary 76.00 

Dietician 200.00 

Dining Hall (Supt.) . 35.00 

Nurse 35.00 

Canteen 157.00 

Lifeguards 133.00 

Total $1888.60 

There are still considerable inadequacies in this item, I hope 
that in the next year, we can increase some of these salaries to 
commensurate for the work done by several members of the reg- 
ular staff. 

B— 

INSURANCE: This item remains the same with one exception. 
We reduced the amount of insurance carried on the truck, since 
we did not use it as a common carrier. We also must increase 
our fire and windstorm insurance during the next year, to take care 
of the new infirmary. This increase will not be very great. 



TRANSPORTATION: I wish to call particular attention to this 
item. It soared nearly $400.00 above the estimated figure carried 
in the budget. This was due to the fact that almost that exact 
amount had to be used to put a new motor in our truck. As much 
as I hated to make this move and put that much money on worn out 
property, it had to be done. This is the item that causes me much 
concern for the coming year. We must purchase a new truck and a 
new station wagon and it will call for a capital investment of at 
least $2500.00. We cannot continue with the present truck. At the 
same time it isn't fair for the camp to wear out the personal cars 
of those in attendance here.

at Camp Leach, I have never witnessed finer camps and conferences 
than we had this summer. The attendance shows a definite in- 
crease over last year and the prospects for the future are most 
encouraging. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 73 
1947 Report on Camp Leach 

IV— CAMP LEACH DEBT: 

The only payment made on this debt during the year was the 
interest. This amounted to $120.00 and was paid last January. At 
that time the debt stood at $3000.00. 

In February of his year an additional $1000.00 had to be bor- 
rowed to take care of running expenses. Since we have already 
noted the losses incurred this year, there is no further need for 
me to explain why this has not been repaid. At the present time 
the debt is $4000.00 owed directly to the Diocese. Interest amount- 
ing to $160.00 will be payable on December 31st, 1946. Unless 
we receive further gifts from, the Parishes and Missions more 
money will have to be borrowed. This presents a real problem 
which I feel must be dealt with at once by this committee.

This Capital Fund is still falling short of the needs and expec- 
tations. We have asked the last convention of the Diocese to 
request that each Parish and Mission in the Diocese raise an 
amount equal to 5% of what they give to the Diocese for Camp 
Leach. Under ordinary circumstances this should give us $2500.00 
each year to spend on capital improvements. This ordinarily 
should be a sufficient amount but with the increased debt, and the 
needs already apparent for next year, we must have at least twice 
this amount to see us through. This Committee must decide 
upon further action now. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 75 
1947 Report on Camp Leach 

VI— NEEDS AND RECOMMENDATIONS. 

As I see it now, these are the needs for the coming year. 

1 — A substantial reduction of the present debt. 

2 — Purchase of a new truck and station wagon. 

3 — Moving Picture Projector, Camera and Equipment. 

4 — New Cots for the Barracks. 

5 — Additional Plumbing which includes a larger tank. 

6 — New roofs for Hostess House and Old Infirmary. 

These are necessary items in next years program. There are 
other things that we need at camp but I believe that the items 
above represent the very minimum of what we must have before 
camp opens next year. This Committee must give its time and ef- 
fort to these problems if we are to be successful. We are definite- 
ly known throughout the Diocese now. The right word at the 
right time, will be of great help to the Business Staff in providing 
the best for our Church in East Carolina. 

It has been a privilege and pleaseure to serve as Business 
Manager for the past year. I hope to be able to give another 
year of two to this work. But I do think it wise for you all to start 
thinking in terms of new blood for this enterprize. It is getting to 
be too much of a job for a man with an active Parish. We will 
need very shortly a full time Manager to carry on this very im- 
portant work.

Church Pension Fund May 

In the absence of Mr. McC. B. Wilson, the secretary presented the 
following letter and report of the Church Pension Fund by title: 
My "dear Mr. Wilson: 

It is the custom of the Church Pension Fund to write a letter 
each year to the proper official in each Diocese and Missionary 
District calling attention to the facts that may be of interest to the 
Convention or Convocation. 

Beginning on January 1, 1947, pension assessments are pay- 
able at the rate of 10 % of the compensation received by the clergy- 
man, the previous basis having been 7%%. This step is unavoid- 
able because of the continued low earnings on high-grade invest- 
ments. Yields are at an all time low, and the outlook for improve- 
ment in this respect is not promising. It would be unthinkable to 
lower the scale of pension benefits in the future, and only the high- 
er assessments can compensate for the depressed interest return. 

The record of assessment payments by congregations of the 
Church has in the past been very close to 100%. There is no 
parish in the Church which does not currently pay assessments. 
The total paid in 1946 was $1,300,000. 

There is enclosed the schedule in your Diocese. Since the 
Fund started in 1917 it has paid out a total of $27,800,000.00 
in pension benefits. The present pension roll is $1,400,000 a year, 
and the figure is increasing steadily. The current value of the 
pension promises held forth to the clergy as a result of their service 
in the Church up to the present time is somewhat over $37,000,000. 
The Fund has balancing resources in hand. 

The wholly owned subsidiaries of the Fund, namely The 
Church Hymnal Corporation, the Church Life Insurance Corpora- 
tion and the Church Properties Fire Insurance Corporation, are 
fulfilling their function. Their respective services are offered to 
the Church at a lower cost than that at which such services are 
ordinarily available, and at the same time they represent sound in- 
vestments of the Fund 

We take this opportunity of expressing the deep appreciation 
of the Trustees of the Fund for the Cooperation of the diocesan 
authorities and the parishes in this effort of the Church to make 
provision for the retired clergy and the widows and minor orphan 
children of clergy. If additional information is needed for your 
Convention, I hope you will let me know. 

Very sincerely yours, 
ROBERT WORTHINGTON 
Executive Vice-President

Mr. J. A. Moore, of Edenton made a motion that the Convention 
hear a report on the Commission on Evangelism. Passed. 

The Convention adjourned at 5:00 P.M. to meet in the Church 
at 8 P.M. for Evening Prayer and an address by the Rev. George- 
A. Wieland, D.D., of the National Council. 

Thursday, May 15th, the Feast of the Ascension, there was a 
Choral Celebration of the Holy Communion in the Church at 8:00 
A.M., Bishop Wright being the celebrant, assisted by the rector 
of the Parish and the Rev. Mortimer Glover. 

The Convention convened at 10 o'clock following this service. 
The Rev. James F. Ferneyhough, chairman of the Board of 
Managers of Camp Leach made the following report of the Board. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 79 
1947 Report on Camp Leach 

ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE DIOCESE OF 
EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop Wright and members of the sixty-fourth Annual Convention 
of the Diocese of East Carolina. 

The Board of Managers of Camp Leach wishes to make a re- 
port of the activities of the Board in behalf of the Camp for the 
past year. 

I was appointed Chairman of the Board by the Bishop and 
elected to that office by the Board last fall. The principal purpose 
of this Board during the year has been to consider the future of 
Camp Leach as a Diocesan center and to set up the Camps and 
Conferences for the summer of 1947. With the very valuable aid 
and interest of our Bishop together with the indespensible assis- 
tance of the several directors of the Camps, a fine faculty has been 
procured for each of the Conferences and Camps. 

Through the very efficient effort of our Business Manager, 
the Rev. John H. Bonner, Jr., of Lumberton, the Camp has been 
put in condition for use this summer and various material necessi- 
ties have either been provided or have been arranged so as to be of 
use when the Camp opens. 

Upon the instructions of the Board, your Chairman has under- 
taken to raise funds for the purpose of buying new cots for the 
Camp. In behalf of the Cot Fund he has written to every Church 
School Superintendent in the Diocese, sending a copy of the letter 
• to the Rector of the Parish. Your Chairman is glad to state that 
according to the report of the Business Manager, Mr. Bonner, the 
response to these letters have been good and the funds are in hand 
with which to pay for the cots which have already been purchased. 

Your Chairman was also directed by the Board to write to each 
Parish in the Diocese acquainting them with the needs of Camp 
Leach for material improvement in the physical property and 
asking for contributions to the Capital Fund. This is the fund 
from which purchases of articles that are in the nature of perma- 
nent improvements are made from time to time during the year 



80 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report on Camp Leach May 

as needed. It is rather unfortunate that up to the present time 
the response to this appeal has not been adequate. It was found 
necessary to purchase a truck or station wagon for the use of the 
Camp during the summer Conferences. It was hoped that the 
funds for purchasing this equipment would be forth coming mak- 
ing it unnecessary to go to the expense of borrowing money or 
financing the purchase of the vehicle. The funds were not forth 
coming and accordingly, it has been necessary to finance the pur- 
chase of the vehicle. 

At a meeting of the Executive Committee and also of the De- 
partment of Finance, it was decided to place Camp Leach under the 
jurisdiction of the Department of Christian Education. This step 
was taken in order to simplify the administration of the Camp 
and to bring it within the category in which it belongs, namely, 
within the field of Christian Education. 

Upon the advice of the Bishop and the decision of the Executive 
Council of the Diocese, a committee was appointed with Mr. 
P. B. Bateman as Chairman to investigate the needs of Camp 
Leach and to discover ways and means of making the Camp what 
it should be, namely, a valuable and adequate Diocesan center. 
Furthermore this committee, principally through its Chairman, 
Mr. Bateman, has brought about vastly improved conditions in 
the highway leading from the paved highway into the Camp. 

Camp Leach will open with the Laymen's Weekend which be- 
gins on June 14th and will close with the All Youth Conference, 
August 17-22. One of the most important features of the entire 
program for the summer is the Clergy-Adult Conference conceived 
and arranged by our Bishop. It should be stated that Bishop 
Wright has taken great pajns to make this one of the most impor- 
tant Conferences in the entire province. An unusually talented 
faculty has been acquired by Canon T. 0. Wedel, Ph.D., Warden of 
the College of Preachers, Washington, D. C, and the Rev. Albert 
T. Mollegen, D.D. of the Virginia Theological Seminary. Our 
Bishop is to be congradulated upon his untiring efforts and his 
signal success in arranging this Conference. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 81 
1947 Report on Camp Leach 

In closing, your Chairman wishes to express appreciation to 
all members of the Board of Managers for their fine energy and 
support in dealing with the affairs of the Camp during the past 
year and to our Business Manager, Mr. Bonner, for his splendid 
interest and efficiency in handling the many details essential to 
the operation of the Camp. And above all he wishes to repeat 
that the entire Diocese should be grateful to our Bishop for his 
untiring efforts in behalf of this Camp. It is doubtful that any 
Bishop in the entire Church has been beset with as many prob- 
lems in one year as Bishop Wright has faced in this Diocese during 
the past year. How he has had time to adjust himself to all of 
these problems is a mystery to all who have watched him. But he 
has addressed himself with great success to these problems is 
a fact that is evident to all who have been cognizant of his work. 
And Camp Leach has profited greatly by his kindly and considerate 
attention. 

It is the belief of your Chairman that this Camp should be 
made into a great and worthy Conference center for the Diocese. 
There has been some mention about relocating the Camp. If this 
is necessary then let us do it with skill and energy. But whatever 
decision we make with reference to the location of the Camp, let 
us be certain that we make this Camp what it can be made if we 
really set ourselves to the opportunity, and that is, one of the best 
Diocesan centers in the entire province.

Notes on the Convention May 



The Eev. Mortimer Glover gave a report of the Committee ap- 
pointed to present the advisability of holding the next Convention 
at the same time and place with the annual meeting of the Wo- 
man's Auxiliary. His report, which he admitted was his individual 
report was in favor of the proposition. The committee consisted 
of the Rev. Mortimer Glover, chairman, the Rev. Alexander Miller, 
Mr. Robert Strange, Mrs. W. D. McMillan, Mrs. Harry G. Walker, 
and Mrs. Louis Poisson. The men were appointed by the Bishop 
at a meeting of the Executive Council held in Wilmington Feb- 
ruary 20th 1947. The women were appointed at the annual meet- 
ing of the Woman's Auxiliary held in St. John's Church, Wilming- 
ton, January 22nd 1947. 

Mr. Robert Strange, a member of the Committee, spoke 
against having the meetings at the same time. 

After much discussion pro and con Mr. Algernon Butler 
moved that "It is the sense of this Convention that our Convention 
does not meet at the same time as the Woman's Auxiliary next 
year; and that consideration of the subject be postponed." This 
was seconded and passed. 

The Rev. Mortimer Glover, speaking for the Committee to re- 
ceive invitations to entertain the next Convention, reported that 
he had received such an invitation from St. Stephen's Church, 
Goldsboro, to meet in that Parish the 2nd Wednesday in May, 1948. 

A motion to accept this invitation was made, seconded, and 
passed. 

Speaking for Mr. W. D. Whisnant, Superintendent of Thomp- 
son Orphanage, Charlotte. Mrs. Whisnant charmed the Convention 
with her human interest stories concerning the Orphanage, and 
presented the Superintendent's report by title as follows: 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 83 
1947 Report on Thompson Orphanage 

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THOMPSON 
ORPHANAGE TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

February 13, 1947 

I am glad to bring you a report which, during a year of many 
obstacles, reflects progress and achievement. Our institution has 
been able to render help and service to the needy children under 
the auspices of the Episcopal Church of the state of North 
Carolina to the limit of our facilities and abilities. Our insti- 
tution continues to rank with the best child caring institutions in 
the South due to the loyalty and interest of our churchmen and 
other friends. This support has been reflected in the type of boys 
and girls that we are caring for. 

It is the policy of the Orphanage to offer our care to those 
children who need a home and training but are unable to secure 
help elsewhere. Although we have many requests for boarding 
home care which would pay a lucrative profit we feel the purpose 
of our institution is better met in answering the appeals of in- 
digent children. The following outline shows in detail the dis- 
tribution of the children cared for in 1946:

During the school year 1945-46 we had seventy-nine Children 
enrolled in the Charlotte Public Schools. I am sorry to relate 
that our perfect score of the past three years was broken. We had 
two high school and one grammar school failure. Although we 
had three failures, the general average showed an improvement 
over the preceeding years. A number of our children were elected 
as class officers and one of our junior high school boys was chosen 
as best citizen of his class. We feel that our regular study halls

Report of Thompson Orphanage May 

under the supervision of our cottage matrons are an important 
factor in the high scholastic record of our children. Of our two 
graduates, one has entered college and one is working as a sec- 
retary. 

Dr. Hipp, Dr. Adams, and Dr. Houser work very closely with 
Miss Dorothy Killian, our nurse, in maintaining the good health 
of our children. Serious illness and accidents are cared for at the 
Memorial Hospital through the generosity of the St. Peter's 
Hospital Foundation. 

Through the efforts of the members of the Executive Commit- 
tee in 1942 a program of permanent improvements to the Orphan- 
age plant was begun. During the past few years this continuing 
interest has resulted in outstanding developments such as three 
large, completely equipped "A" grade barns, a registered Jersey 
herd of seventeen milk cows, sixteen heifers, and one bull, a trac- 
tor, an insilage cutter, a tiller plow, a disc harrow, a hammer mill, 
a ton and a half truck, a wagon, a cyclone fence, a steel bridge, 
a completely equipped dining room and kitchen, a cold storage and 
freezing unit, and a hundred and sixty-nine acre farm. 

Some progress has been made in the development of our 
new farm, Cedarbrook.' Forty-eight hundred feet of terraces have 
been completed, reclaiming sixteen acres of eroded land. A dam 
has been constructed forming a two acre lake which has been 
stocked with fish. The lake is a source of pleasure as it affords us 
opportunities for swimming, boating, and fishing. The additional 
acreage enables us to grow feed for our chickens, hogs, and beef 
cattle. 

Through the interest of our Orphanage boys in caring for 
the dairy herd we are provided an ample supply of milk and a sur- 
plus to place on the market. In 1946 we produced 11,846.3 gallons 
of milk — of this amount we sold $2,179.21. The total amount of 
food produced on the farm here was $10,174.63. 

In our efforts to train the Thompson Orphanage children to be- 
come self-reliant, dependable men and women we depend wholly 
upon the loyalty and support of the members of the Episcopal 
Church in North Carolina, and through the interest you have 
shown in the past we feel confident that we can rely on you. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

M. D. Whisnant, Supt.

The Rev. Bertram Cooper, Episcopal Chaplain at the University 
of North Carolina, made his report. 

The following telegram was received by the Bishop from the 
Secretary of the Diocese of Western North Carolina, the Rev. 
James P. Burke: 

» ' 

"Diocese of Western North Carolina sends greetings to Dio- 
cese of East Carolina." 

This telegram was read and accepted and the secretary asked 
to send an answer, which he did, as follows: 

"Diocese of East Carolina reciprocates greetings from Diocese 
of Western North Carolina." 

The Bishop established an Architectural Committee and ap- 
pointed the Rev. Alexander Miller, Mr. James B. Lynch, and the 
Rev. Robert M. Kellerman as members of this Committee.

report to make. 

The Rev. Stephen Gardner, acting as chairman of the Commit- 
tee on Relations to and Communications from the General Conven-

SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 87 



1947 Department of Evangelism 



THE REV. JACK R. ROUNTREE MADE THE FOLLOWING 
REPORT — DEPARTMENT OF EVANGELISM 



Your department of Evangelism is of the conviction that the 
paramount need of the world today is for a clear-cut and fearless 
presentation of the claims of the Gospel of God to the considera- 
tion of all peoples that they may be led into such appreciation of 
the love of God as revealed in Christ Jesus that they may be in- 
fluenced to try His way. Every other way has failed for a better 
world. In fact it would seem that all plans for world peace are 
failing because of the neglect to accord to God His rightful place 
in the life of the world. Instead of moving towards peace, we 
seem to be drawing farther and farther away from-: any feeling of 
goodwill for others. 

It seems to us that the only hope does lie in the awakening 
of the Church to its sense of responsibility, and high privilege, to 
be the voice through which God may speak to man. The early 
Church went everywhere preaching the Gospel, convicting men 
of sin and persuading them to turn to God. It was their joy to 
tell the story of Jesus with such courage and audacity that men 
did cry out, "What must we do to be saved ? ". And the reply was 
ever "Repent and turn to God that your sins might be blotted out 
so that the Spirit of God might bring you a new fulness of life. 
And as they repented and were baptized, God added to the Church 
daily those that were being saved. 

One noticeable fact about that early work of the Church was 
that preaching was not limited to the Apostles, but that every 
convert became an evangelist witnessing to what God through 
Christ had done with his own life. Changed men were able to 
speak of what they had themselves experienced, and were listened 
to, and their testimony carried conviction and won others. 



88 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Department of Evangelism 

This is no time for an easy Gospel. Men still need to be 
convinced of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. No easy 
going social gospel, nor superficial program of education, is 
sufficient for today. Men must be led to face God. Men need to 
be gripped by God. And the Church must dare to stand with 
plumbline in hand and challenge man to measure himself by the 
Person of Jesus Christ. 

It seems to us that this is an urgent necessity and can no long- 
er be ignored. If the Church is the living body of Christ, of 
which every christian is a living member, then the Church must 
be the living embodiment of the . spirit of Christ seeking to save 
the lost, and bring them to the Father. It is not the work of the 
clergy alone- — it is the duty of every member to be an evangelist; 
proclaiming by word and life the call of Christ to take up the 
Cross, daily, and follow Him. 

For this reason the department of evangelism wishes to sug- 
gest the following as a tentative program: 

First — The Continuation of the clergy fellowship conferences 
and that Evangelism be the theme of the study and discussions this 
year. 

Second — The development of a diocesan-wide campaign of 
evangelism, to be inaugurated in the fall, and that provision be 
made for the enlistment of every member of the Church in carry- 
ing it out. Our goal might be "One Win One" as we stress the 
importance of every christian being responsible for winning some 
other person for Christ. 

It is not possible within the time limit allotted me to present 
an adequately prepared program at this time. So I suggest that 
the Department of Evangelism be asked to prepare a full and 
complete program and present it at some session of the clergy- 
adult conference for consideration and adoption. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

JACK R. ROUNTREE 

Chairman Department of Evangelism 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL .CONVENTION 89 



1947 Notes on the Convention 



The Convention proceeded to the nominations and elections 
of Delegates and Alternates to the Provincial Synod. 

The Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser, Jr. offered the following resolu- 
tion which was adopted: 

Resolved that this Convention express its thanks to the Rec- 
tor, and through him, to the congregation and friends, and to the 
Press, for their wonderful cooperation in making this Convention 
such a success. 

A motion was made and carried that the Sexton of the Church 
be given $5.00 for his service to the Convention. 

The secretary was asked to send the following telegram to the 
Presiding Bishop of the Church: 

"The Diocese of East Carolina approves the action of the 
National Council in inaugurating a Plan of Evangelism and is mak- 
ing plans to do its part." 

This telegram was sent, and later the following reply was re- 
ceived from the Presiding Bishop: 



Dear Mr. Gardner, 

Thank you so much for your enheartening telegram on behalf 
of the Diocese of East Carolina in regard to the action of the 
National Council in inaugurating the Plan of Evangelism. 

This gives us a real lift and I wish you to know how much it 
means to have the support of your important Diocese in this 
matter. 

With warm regards, 

Gratefully yours.

Bishop's Address May 



THE BISHOP'S ADDRESS — 1947 



Brethern of the Clergy and Laity 
of the Diocese of East Carolina: 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and the 
Lord Jesus Christ." 

It is with a profound sense of thankfulness that I welcome you 
to the Sixty-fourth Annual Convention of the Diocese of East 
Carolina and the second over which I have had the privilege of 
presiding. 

The past year has been one of great joy and happiness to me 
and my family, and for this, first of all, I wish to express my sin- 
cere gratitude to you. I remember when I delivered my address 
last year I saw many new faces before me, and I felt in a sense 
that I was in the midst of strangers. This year, however, from 
looking over the list of delegates coming to this Convention, I 
know that this is not the case. Almost everyone here today as a 
delegate I believe that I know personally and can call a true and 
a trusted friend. Each day I thank God that in His Gracious 
Goodness He has seem fit to call me to this work to serve in this, 
my beloved section of His Vineyard. God grant that I may live up 
in some measure to the high calling and the noble tradition which 
has been handed down to me. 

I cannot refrain from expressing my regret that our beloved 
Bishop Darst is not in attendance at this Convention today. His 
absence is due to a scheduled engagement Confirming in the 
Diocese of Ohio, an engagement which was only possible for him 
to keep during this month of May. I would like to say, however, 
that the Bishop has definitely consented to be present with us at 
the Convention next year and to take some important part in our 
Convention program. During this past year it has been a great 
source of comfort to me to have his loving counsel, his wisdom and 
uplifting inspiration. I thank God always for his life, his pre- 
sence with us and his Christ-like influence. 



96 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

1947 Bishop's Report 

Since the last meeting of this Convention, four Clergymen 
canonically resident in our Diocese have passed into God's eternal 
Kingdom. Although the Rev. William H. Milton, D.D. had been 
retired for some years it is most fitting that this Convention 
take particular note of his death on June 26, 1946. Rector of St. 
James' Church, Wilmington, from 1909 to 1936, Dr. Milton had 
been many times a member of the Standing Committee and the 
Executive Council of East Carolina. He represented us as a 
deputy to many General Conventions and received the high and 
distinct honor of being elected to our National Council. He was 
the first Executive Secretary of the Field Department of the 
National Council. He will always be remembered whenever those 
of East Carolina come together. 

On Auguet 5, 1946, the Rev. I. Johnson's unexpected death 
came as an irreparable loss to our work in this Diocese and to 
Negro work everywhere in the church. My association with Arch- 
deacon Johnson will always live with me, and I found no finer 
satisfaction in my work and ministry anywhere than his high- 
minded, cooperative spirit that rose above all barriers of color 
and distinction wherever two or three were gathered together in 
Christ's name. Archdeacon of the Negro work of our diocese, he 
served as Rector of St. Cyprian's Church, New Bern, and Superin- 
tendent of the Good Shepherd Hospital until the time of his death. 

On February 16th of this year the Rev. John R. Tolar left 
us for God's Greater Work. He left a vacancy in many areas of 
our diocesan life and activity. For many years Chairman of the 
Department of Finance, he guided this diocese through calm wat- 
ers and rough seas, and his keen business acumen served us 
faithfully and well. A great and kind Christian pastor and friend, 
he has left behind many who loved him dearly and mourn his earth- 
ly loss. For some years the Rev. Mr. Tolar was Priest-in-Charge 
of St. Phillip's, Fayetteville; St. Stephen's, Red Springs; and Christ 
Church, Hope Mills. 

On March 24, 1946, the Rev. J. Stewart Braitwaite died after 
a long illness. He served faithfully his Lord for many years, ser- 
ving in the Diocese of Florida, New Jersey and Georgia before 
coming as Rector of St. Joseph's Church, Fayetteville in 1935. 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 97 



1947 Bishop's Address 



Although not canonically resident in this diocese, The Rev. 
Edgar Jones, who died April 9, 1946, rendered an outstanding min- 
istry to St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, for many years after his 
retirement and residence in this diocese. I cannot let this address 
be made without some mention of this great Christian Preacher 
and Pastor who lived, served and died in our midst. 

May they go from strength to strength in God's life of perfect 

It is impossible in this address to give adequate recognition 
to all events of 1946, but I do want to call attention at least to 
renovations and improvements in the physical conditions of the 
following churches which have been brought to my attention. Dur- 
ing the year 1946 St. Stephen's Church, Goldsboro, completely re- 
novated the inside of the church, and the whole diocese is proud 
of this beautiful structure. Improvements were made during the 
past year and commendation should be given to St. Cyprian's 
Church, New Bern; St. John's Church, Wilmington; Emmanuel 
Church, Farmville; Galilee Mission, Lake Phelps; St. Thomas' 
Church, Atkinson; St. David's Church, Creswell; St. Mark's Church, 
Wilmington; and St. Matthew's, Yeatesville. Great progress has 
been made by Trinity Church, Lumberton, toward the erection of a 
new Parish House, and although work has not actually begun 
plans have been made, architect's drawings have been completed, 
and most of the funds necessary have been raised. This Conven- 
tion should extend its hearty congratulations to the rectors and 
vestries of these churches. 



LAY READERS 

I wish in this address to pay special tribute to the splendid 
group of Lay Readers of East Carolina who have rendered such 
loyal service at a time when many of our churches were vacant 
and it was impossible to supply them with ordained men. Working 
this past year under the direction of the Rev. Richard L. Sturgis, 
Archdeacon of the Wilmington District, and with the coordinating 
efforts of Mr. E. Clark Adams, of St. James Church, Wilmington, 
a group of loyal laymen has served twelve churches around the 
vicinity of Wilmington. To our Lay Readers I feel more indebted 
than I can adequately express in this address today, and I wish at 
this time to commend them most sincerely and heartily. 



98 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address May 

NEW CLERGYMEN 

Since the last Convention of this Diocese, two new Clergymen 
have been officially transferred and have come into our Diocesan 
family. The Rev. Robert M. Kellerman, Rector of St. Paul's 
Church, Clinton and Priest-in-Charge of St. Gabriel's, Faison, and 
the Rev. Julius A. Pratt, Rector of Grace Church, Whiteville, and 
Priest-in-Charge of St. Andrew's, Calobash, and Gaus' Landing 
Mission. In addition to these two outstanding men I would like 
to announce that the Rev. Edward M. Spruill will become Rector 
of Grace Church, Plymouth, and St. Luke's Church, Roper, effective 
June 1st, and during the summer St. Anne's Church, Jacksonville, 
and St. James Church, Ayden, will be filled by a Seminary graduate 
who has decided to begin his ministry with us in East Carolina. 
This latter, I might say, is subject to the approval of our Stand- 
ing Committee and Examining Chaplains. 

During the past year and a half, with the inclusion of the 
names of the Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser and the Rev. Richard L. Stur- 
gis, this will make six new Clergymen who have come into the 
diocese of East Carolina, and it gives me great pleasure to report 
officially at this time that this will fill all of the vacancies in the 
white churches in our diocese. I know that you feel as gratified as 
I do that this announcement can be made at this time. 

NEGRO WORK 

Following the announcement concerning our white work, I am 
sorry to report that although I believe that I have put greater ef- 
fort in the task of securing new Negro Clergymen that we still 
have many vacancies in our Negro work. The whole Church is 
greatly handicapped at the present time by the serious scaracity 
of Negro Clergymen, which condition is acute throughout the 
country. As you will recall in my Convention Address of last 
year, Archdeacon Johonson and I frankly faced this situation and 
proposed new and unusual measures to meet this, in the establish- 
ment of a Lay Evangelist Training School in New Bern. All of 
my plans, as you will recall, centered around this great Negro 
Leader, and I regret to report that without him it was impossible 
to proceed as I had anticipated. 

The physical equipment of many of our Negro churches is 
in bad condition, and although I have had some renovations done 
this past year, much thought and effort must be given to this 
during the coming year. Another difficulty has been the salaries 
of our Negro Clergymen. I am happy to report, however, that 
through the splendid cooperation of our National Council this 
salary level has now been raised, and I consider it entirely ade- 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 99 



1947 Bishop's Address 



quate. I believe that within the next few months it will be possible 
to fill many vacancies in our Negro work, and in this area I feel 
highly optimistic for the first time since I have been attempting 
to fill our Negro vacancies. 

The Good Shepherd Hospital in New Bern is continuing its 
useful ministrations to the sick and injured people of a constantly 
expanding area. Since the last Convention of this Diocese a new 
Superintendent has been secured in the person of a Negro layman, 
Mr. Ozzie Faison. I would like to commend the Chairman of the 
Board of the Good Shepherd Hospital, Mr. John Dunn, Jr. of New 
Bern, for his outstanding services during the past year. I wish 
to state frankly that the operation of the hospital from a financial 
standpoint gives us great concern at the present time, and I feel 
that it must be put upon a sounder basis. This is one of our great 
opportunities for service in East Carolina, and because of its need 
for financial stabilization immediately, I wish to ask your particu- 
lar attention to the report of the hospital when it shall come up on 
the Convention floor during these days together. 

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

I know of no single phase of our church's life and activity 
mora important than Christian Education and the work being done 
by our Church School Teachers and Pupils. During this Conven- 
tion statistics will be presented on all phases of our diocesan ac- 
tivity, and you will note gains in every area except that of the 
Church School Teachers. During the past year we show a loss 
of ninety-three officers and teachers in our Church Schools, but a 
gain of thirty scholars. This area should never show a loss, but 
always a gain. The future of our church rests upon what is being 
done with our children and young people. In my address last year 
I mentioned the increasing use in the church of Visual Education. 
Throughout the country this is recognized as an almost necessary 
modern approach to the teaching of our children. I feel that 
every parish that can possibly do so should have equipment for 
Visual Education, and I earnestly urge our churches throughout 
the diocese to consider this matter and to give it some thought and 
study. During the past few months we have purchased the most 
modern equipment for Visual Education, to be owned by the dio- 
cese. It is to be used at Camp Leach in the summer, and we will 
be more than delighted to have it used during the winter in smaller 
places which cannot afford the purchase of visual education equip- 
ment. 



100 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Address May 

I feel that one of the real needs of our diocese is a Director 
of Christian Education, and I would like to say at this time that 
in 1948 I wish to ask the diocese for permission to employ a woman 
as full time "Director of Christian Education" for the Diocese 
of East Carolina. 

A great opportunity for the promotion of Christian Education 
is through Camp Leach, our Diocesan Summer Conference Center. 
Camp Leach is rendering a great and invaluable service to the 
diocese at the present time, and it is my hope to make our Summer 
Conference Center outstanding in the whole country. I would like 
to particularly call your attention to the Clergy-Adult Conference 
which will be held this June when a faculty will be present unexcell- 
ed in the whole Church. In keeping with my earnest desire to 
move forward in this area with a Conference Center, a special 
Evaluation Committee of Camp Leach was appointed last January 
by the Executive Board. Because of the great need for renewed 
emphasis in this area and the many financial needs of Camp Leach 
at this time I beg your earnest attention to the reports of Camp 
Leach when they shall be presented on the Convention floor. 

WORLD RELIEF 

Our Presiding Bishop's call to World Relief I ask your partic- 
ular consideration of at this convention. I feel that our diocese 
will give wholeheartedly to this great humanitarian cause as 
generously as we gave last year for the Reconstruction and Ad- 
vance Fund. Again I would like to commend St. James, Wil- 
mington, for their unselfish generosity. During the year 1946, 
with our contribution to the Reconstruction and Advance Fund, 
East Carolna reached an all time high in its giving to the Gen- 
eral Church, the diocese and others. Previous to this year the 
high peak for the diocese in its givings had been a little over sixty- 
nine thousand dollars in 1921; in 1946 our all time high was a little 
over ninety -four thousand dollars, including our gifts to Recon- 
struction and Advance. In heeding the call of our Presiding 
Bishop to World Relief let us ever be mindful of the injunction of 
our Blessed Lord "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the 
least of these my Brethren, ye have done it unto Me." 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 101 
1947 Bishop's Address 

NATIONAL COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE 

A distinct honor came to East Carolina with the election of 
Mr. Champion McDowell Davis of St. John's Church, Wilmington, 
to the National Council. Mr. Davis is rendering a fine and out- 
standing service to the General Church at this time, and it is a 
source of great pride to East Carolina to know that the diocese 
is making a national contribution through this consecrated and 

EVANGELISM 

Those who have read the Church papers recently know that 
the Presiding Bishop and National Council are preparing to launch 
forth with a new emphasis upon evangelism throughout the 
church. They are seeking to do this because of its crying need 
everywhere. I feel that East Carolina should take full cognizance 
of this and should carefully analyze our own efforts, seeking what 
may be done in the months that lie ahead. I wish to call your 
particular attention in this regard to the area of Confirmations, 
hoping that we may strengthen our work here. During the year 
1946 the number Confirmed in East Carolina was approximately 
four percent of our total diocesan communicant list. To make up 
this four percent the number Confirmed in our parishes and mis- 
sions varied all the way from a high peak of approximately sixteen 
percent Confirmed in St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, down to approx- 
imately one percent. Some of the percentages are deplorably 
low. In talking and writing to Bishops and Rectors throughout 
the country I understand that they consider a normal expectation 
of Confirmations in parishes and missions to range between six 
percent and twelve percent of the communicant list of a church, 
and that they feel always that half of this number should be adult 
Confirmations. In keeping with our Presiding Bishop's call for 
Evangelism and the increase of communicants therefore I wish to 
ask your earnest and prayerful consideration of these figures." 
Looking toward the acceptance of goals for the coming year it is 
to be noted that the Methodist Church set a goal of one million 
new members during the year 1946 and that they actually obtained 
1.050,889. This does not mean proselytizing on the part of the 



102 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Address May 

Episcopal Church, as it is a well known fact that in all of 
our cities, towns, and communities there are many unchurched 
people, having no active affiliation. It is to this group that I 
believe Christ is calling us today in no uncertain terms.. This 
is a serious matter, my brethren, and let me say that I do not 
feel it to be a matter entirely for the Clergymen, but is should 
be on the hearts and minds of laymen and laywomen throughout 
the diocese as well, and it should be discussed in our Vestry 
meetings and in all of our Church gatherings. 
ENDOWMENT FUND 

As I near the close of this address there is one more vital 
matter which I wish consideration of in this Convention. Through- 
out the diocese at the present time there is a widespread feeling 
that the establishment of an Endowment Fund should be im- 
mediately created in the diocese. This has come to me from many 
sources during the year. In keeping with this therefore I hope 
our Chancellor will present during this Convention for the form- 
ulation of an Endowment Fund for East Carolina. I feel that the 
establishment of this fund is one of the most vital and important 
things that can be done by this Convention, and I ask for your 
earnest consideration, not only should this matter be presented on 
the floor by our Chancellor, but to the establishment of the whole 
plan throughout the diocese during the coming year. 

Aa I close, my second address to you as Bishop of East 
Carolina, I am sure that I feel, as you do, the tremendous re- 
sponsibility that rests today upon those of us in the world who 
profess and call ourselves Christian. The whole world is looking 
to America today and the hope of the world lies in the principles 
of Christ that have made America strong. Even deeper than this, 
however, is the faith by which we live and die — the faith in Jesus, 
the Divine Son of God — the faith that God has handed down to 
us, not to keep closeted within a little group, but to spread forth 
into the world, and in that task to give all that we have of body, 
soul and mind. To this evangelism I call this diocese in the days 
that lie ahead. I pledge to you my efforts as best I may; I call 
all of you. Clergy and Laity, to move forward in God's name, 
winning souls to Him who made us a promise, "If I be lifted up, 
I will draw all men unto Me." 

God grant that East Carolina may lift Him up ; God grant that 
East Carolina may draw many unto Him. Let us go forward seek- 
ing ever higher ground, as, "Workers together with Him" in the 
high calling of Jesus Christ the son of God. Amen.

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the books and records of the Diocese of 
East Carolina, as maintained by the Treasurer, Mr. Robert Strange, 
for the year ended December 31, 1946. Our examination embraced 
the verification of all receipts as recorded in the official receipts 
books and tracing same to the depository. All disbursements were 
made by approved vouchers drawn on The Wilmington Savings and 
Trust Company, Wilmington, North Carolina and test checks were 
made of supporting evidence. The distribution of receipts and dis- 
bursements and transfers between funds were accepted as correct. 

We have also examined the report as prepared by the Treasur- 
er and hereby certify the correctness of the totals thereof subject 
to the comments of this report.

Total Liabilities $68 829.82 

The Securities were inspected by us on April 17, 1947, same 
being located in a safety deposit box at The Security National 
Bank, Wilmington, North Carolina. All Securities were on hand 
with the exception of the Goldsboro Union Station Bonds, which 
according to a letter signed by J. V. Grainger are held in trust for 
the Diocese of East Carolina. Attention is called to the fact that 
the notes of the Bath Restoration purchased during the year under 
review have not been endorsed by the Good Shepherd Hospital. 

As reflected by the books the funds on deposit at December 
31, 1946 represent the balances of the following funds: 

Diocesan Support $ 7,234.26 

Diocesan Missions 6 616.93 

Bishop's Fund 3,988.63 

Total $17,839.82 

Funds on deposit with the Wilmington Savings and Trust 
Company, Wilmington, North Carolina were reconciled with the 
records of and confirmed by the depository. 

In our opinion, based upon such examination and subject to the 
foregoing comments, the accompanying statements correctly set 
forth the financial condition of the Diocese at December 31, 1946, 
and the Receipts and Disbursements for the year ended same date.

APPENDIX "D" 



BISHOP WRIGHT AND MEMBERS OF THE SIXTY- 
FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE DIOCESE 
OF EAST CAROLINA 



BISHOP WRIGHT AND MEMBERS OF THE SIXTY-FOURTH 

ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE DIOCESE OF EAST 

CAROLINA 

The Department of Christian Education of the East Carolina 
wishes to make a brief report of the activities of this Department 
for the past year. 

In making this report I feel that I am breaking virgin soil. An 
examination of the Diocesan Journal for several years past fails 
to reveal a single report by this very important agency of the 
Diocese, Department of Christian Education. I take added 
pleasure, therefore, in presenting to this Convention the report 
of what should be one of the most active Departments of any 
Diocese. And I would premise my report with the observation 
that as strong as our Church is in so many respects, for some 
reason it seems to have fallen far behind our sister denominations 
in the very vital and important field of Christian, or Religious 
Education. Our Sunday Schools in the Church generally from 
nearly all reports are in most instances poorly attended. In many 
respects great difficulty is experiencel in obtaining teachers. And 
the tragic truth of the entire situation is that our Church at large 
does not have a curriculm adequate to the needs of present day 
Christian Education, especially under the peculiar conditions 
attending nearly every Parish in the Church. These remarks and 
this report are now presented partly in hope that interest will be 
stirred in this Convention to begin a process which at least in this 
Diocese will undertake to correct a condition which badly needs 
attention. 

Your . Chairman was elected at the last annual Convention and 
in consultation with the Bishop, appointed the following members 
of the Executive Council to the Department: Rev. John H. Bonner, 
Jr. of Lumberton, Rev. E. F. Mosely of Kinston, Mrs. W, 0, S, 
Sutherland of Wilmington, and Mr. P. B. Bateman of Plymouth. 
Since, according to our canon only members of the Executive 
Committee can be official members of the Department of the 
Christian Education, additional members to the Department have 
to be designated as Associate members. The Associate members 
so far appointed are Miss Hennie Long of Greenville and Miss 
Elizabeth Vann Moore of Edenton. These, together with the 
Bishop of our Diocese, make up the membership of the Depart- 
ment of Christian Education. It is intended, however, to have 
more representation within the Doicese, especially from a geo- 
graphical standpoint and additional associate members will oe 
appoisted. Furthermore, it is planned to appoint additional 
officers within the Department in order to make the general setup 
of the Department correspond with that of the Provincial Depart- 
ment. Under this plan special Diocesan Chairmen have been or 



174 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Dept. of Christian Education May 

will be appointed as follows: Chairman for Negro Education, 
Chairman for Christmas Box, Chairman for Church School Lenten 
Offering, Chairman for Birthday Thank Offering, and Chairman 
of the Guild of the Christ Child. 

The Chairman takes pleasure in announcing the appointment 
of Miss Elizabeth Vann Moore of Edenton as Diocesan Chairman 
of the Guild of the Christ Child. This is a very important Depart- 
ment in the general work of Christian Education both in the Diocese 
and in the Parish. It is hoped that each Parish which has not 
already done so will appoint a Chairman for this work. The work 
corresponds generally to what is known in otrer denominations 
as the "Cradle Roll.'' The purpose is to minister to the children 
of the Parish from birth until they are ready to enter the Nursery 
Department of the Church School. Where it is done effectively 
this work can be of inestimable value to the Church School for it 
encourages a live interest on the part of the parents of pre Church 
School age children and is a valuable "feeder" for the School. 

Under the active interest of our Bishop and responding to a 
suggestion which he made at the inception of the office as Bishop 
of this Diocese, this Department of Christian Education last fall 
inaugurated the first annual Church School training institute in 
the history of the Diocese. The first meeting was held at St. 
Paul's Church, Edenton for the convocation of Edenton, and second 
at St. James' Church, Wilmington for the convocation of Wilming- 
ton. The response in both instances was most encouraging. 
Nearly all of the Clergy of each convocation attended and cooper- 
ated in obtaining the attendance of their teachers. It is regretable 
that an exact registration figure was not obtainable for both 
meetings, but there were more than one hundred teachers and 
Clergy attending the two meetings. 

In as much as it is hoped that this initial institute is the fore 
runner of an annual institute of greater and greater importance 
to the Diocese, it is fitting and proper that we should list as a 
matter of Diocesan history the names of those who registered at 
the two meetings, together with the Church Schools thus reported. 
In the meeting of the Edenton convocation, the representation was 
as follows: 

ELIZABETH CITY, Christ Church — Rev. George F. Hill, Mrs. 
Tom Weews, Mrs. W. M. Bruce, Mrs. A. W. Gard, Jr. WASH- 
INGTON, — the Rev. Stephen Gardner, Mr. John G. Bragaw,Miss 
FrancesDouglas, Mrs. Jessie Lathem, Mrs. A. T. Stewart, Mrs.

The institute was presented by the Chairman and was conducted 
by Miss Frances Young of the Division of Christian Education of 
our National Council. 

Unfortunately there were others who attended both meetings who 
failed to register their names and consequently they cannot be 
recorded in this report as they are unknown. The Bishop attended 
both meetings and Mrs. W. O. S. Sutherland, President of the 



176 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report — Dept. of Christian Education May 

Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese, also attended the meeting in 
Wilmington. 

We are happy to report that the second annual institute is now 
being planned for this fall. This year we are fortunate again in 
obtaining the services of one of the staff of Christian Education 
Department of the National Council, she is Miss Charlotte Tomp- 
kins and one of the principal emphases she will make this year in 
conducting the institute is the use of Visual Education in Church 
Schools. Miss Tompkins is nationally known for her ability in 
the field of Christian Education and the Department is looking 
forward with a great deal of pleasure to her visit to this Diocese 
to conduct the institute next fall. Last fall we profited greatly 
by the splendid presentation which was made by Miss Frances 
Young of the very vital subjects discussed in the institute. Her 
particular topics included "Planning the Year's Program in the 
Church School", ''The Techniques of Teaching — How to Make 
Lessons Interesting", "Church School Material And How to Use 
Them", "Visual Education in the Church Schools", and "Materials 
for Use During Lent.'' , 

An event of great importance in the general work of Christian 
Education in the Diocese took place last year when Miss Eleanor 
Synder came to St. James' Church, Wilmington, as full time Sec- 
retary of Christian Education. Miss Synder has done excellent 
work both in her own Parish and in other Parishes in the Diocese. 
Recently she assisted in promoting at the Good Shepherd, Wilming- 
ton, what promises to be a project of great assistance to the rural 
districts of our Diocese. A group of young women of that Church 
have under taken to set up a Church School correspondence course 
for children in the rural districts who do not have the advantages 
of regular sessions of the Church School on Sundays. This Depart- 
ment wishes to give this project every encouragement and antici- 
pates that the work will do great good for many children who 
would otherwise receive little nurture in the field of Christian 
Education. 

During the course of the year your Chairman of this Department 
attended two conferences of importance. First was the confer- 
ence of the Diocesan Chairman of Christian Education which was 
held in Atlanta last fall. The specific matter presented at that 
time was the latest techniques in Visual Education. The second 
meeting was the conference of the Provincial Department of 
Christian Education meeting jointly with the Association of Dio- 
cesan Chairmen. This conference was held in New Orleans in 
February. The Rt. Rev. John Long Jackson, D.D., Bishop of 



SIXTY-FOURTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 177 
1947 Report — Dept. of Christian Education 

Louisiana, made a generous and delightful host, and the confer- 
ence will long live in pleasant memory on behalf of all who were 
fortunate to attend. The main theme of that conference was the 
importance of Summer Camps and Conferences in the field of 
Christian Education. 

In closing the Chairman wishes on behalf of the entire Depart- 
ment to express appreciation to our busy and beloved Bishop for 
the intense interest and encouragement which he is exhibiting' 
and giving to the Department in its work in this Diocese. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

James F. Ferneyhough, Chairman

A Meeting of the Executive Council of the Diocese of East

mington, on February 20, 1947. The Bishop opened the meeting 
with a prayer after which the Secretary called the roll.

he had been the night before to assist the minister, Mr. Bonngr,

years ago," said Bishop Darst, "I saw the fullfillment of a dream — 
the consecration of Trinity, Lumberton." 

The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. 

There was a discussion of lengthening the time of the next 
Convention, to be held in Beaufort, North Carolina, in May. Mr.

Program. Seconded and passed.

in the Diocese. The past year was a grand one, thanks to the people 

of the Diocese. He reported, also, that the Apportionments are 

being accepted at 6% over last year's figure. He stressed the im- 



188 DIOCESE OP EAST CAROLINA 



Minutes of the Executive Council May 

portance of having a definite basis on which to determine these 
Apportionments. Mr. Strange also discussed the question of the 
house at 1311 Chestnut Street now occupied by Mrs. W. R. Noe. 
This matter will be discussed at the Finance Meeting next week. 

Mr. Ferneyhough asked if it would be out of order for the 
latest changqs to be included in the Diocesan Canons. Mr. Glover 
moved that the Commitee of Canons bring up-o-date the Canons 
of the Church and that the Secretary of the Convention make, any 
changes in the Canons from year to year and print just the 
changes. Bishop Wright moved that the Secretary of the Board 
ask the Committee to bring the Canons up-to-date, but to wait until 
after the Convention o do this. Motion made and passed. 

REPORT, CHAIRMAN of FINANCE DEPARTMENT— Mr. Ruffin 
Mr. Ruffin, Chairman of the Finannce Department, referred 
to Mr. Strange's report that the Diocese of East Carolina is oper- 
ating in the black. He also referred to the financial condition of the 
Good Shepherd Hospital, and said that this would be brought to 
the attention of the Finance Department next week. An audit is 
being made of the Hospital's accounts, after which the Finance 
Department should call on the Executive Council for definite action 
in this case. 

REPORT, DEPT. of CHRISTIAN EDUCATION— Mr. Ferneyhough

1947 Minutes of the Executive Council 

pressed the hope that, in time to come, these would be devoted to 
one particular thing, citing as an example, the United Thank Of- 
fering of the Women. Mr. Ferneyhough agreed with Mr. Gardner 
in this respect. 

REPORT, DEPT. of CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Mrs. W. O. S. Sutherland 
Mrs. Sutherland gave a report of the meeting in Atlanta on 
the 'Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief." This Drive is 
to begin on February 23rd and last through Whitsunday. It was 
estimated that the Diocesan share would be approximately one- 
half of its Quota ($10„400.QC) to the National Church, or approxi- 
mately $5,200.00. Bishop Wright asked Rev. John W. Hardy, of 
Williamston, who also represented this Diocese at the meeting 
in Atlanta, to serve as Chairman of the Fund, with the approval of 
the Executive Council. A special film, "Not By Bread Alone." is 
available for the Parishes to assist them in this Drive. Mr. Ferney- 
hough moved that the matter of presenting this to the Parishes 
be left in the hands of a committee composed of Bishop Wright, 
Mrs. W. 0. S. Sutherland, and Mr. Hardy. Motion passed. 

NEW MEN IN DIOCESE AND PRESENT VACANCIES 
Bishop Wright reported that, last year, four new Clergymen 
had been secured: 

(1) Rev. Roscoe Hauser, Greenville. 
- (2) Rev. R. L. Sturgis, Mission Field. 

(3) Rev. R. M. Kellerman, Clinton and Faison. 

(4) Rev. J. A. Pratt, who arrives on March 15th to assume 
his duties at Grace Church Whiteville, and our two Mis- 
sions at Calabash and Gaus' Landing. 

Only two vacancies are left among our white work: 

(1) Ayden and Jacksonville 

(2) Plymouth and Roper 

At present, five vacancies exist in our negro work. However, 
Bishop Wright expressed the hope to have acceptances for these 
by the time of the Convention in May. 

REQUESTS FROM MR. GAITHER 

Rev. B. W. Gaither requested $600.00 with which to start a 
new Mission in Hyde County and an additional $500.00 to complete 
the Church at Swan Quarter, which has been in the process of 
completion for 20 or 30 years. Mr. Miller moved that the request 
from Mr. Gaither for $600.00 for the new Mission in Hyde County 
Missions and Church Extensionbe referred to the Department of 



190 DIOCESE OP EAST CAROLINA 



Minutes of the Executive Council May 



for further study. Seconded and passed. The $500 for Swan Quarter 
was left to the Bishop to handle as he feels that this is a definite 
need and that Swan Quarter should be finished . 

Mr. Gaither also requested a Parish House (shack affair) for 
Galilee Mission. This request, too, was referred to the Department 
of Missions and Church Extension. 

REQUEST, PAMLICO COUNTY 
Bishop Wright met with a delegation of men in Aurora, who 
requested the opening of an Episcopal Church in Pamlico County, 
near the water. This, likewise, was referred to the Department of 
Missions and Church Extension, Mr. P. B. Bateman, Chairman. 

REQUEST, MRS. GRIFFITH FOR ADDITIONAL STIPEND 
FOR COLORED KINDERGARTEN 

Bishop Wright explained the fact that we operate a colored 
parochial kindergarten in Edenton. For runinng this kindergarten, 
Mrs. S. N. Griffith receives the stipend of $15.00 per month. She 
has requested an increase in salary. Mr. Bonner moved that the 
matter be refererd to the Department of Christian Education for 
further study. However, Mr. Ferneyhough moved that this be left 
to the discretion of the Bishop since it takes such a long time for 
such investigations and because of the high cost of living today. 
The motion was moved to leave this in the hands of the Bishop and 
for him to increase the stipend if he deems it necessary. Passed. , 

ARCHITECTURAL COMMISSION 
Bishop Wright expressed the feeling that whenever any change 
in the architecture of a Church is made, a Commission should be 
called upon for advice. He was given the authority to appoint such 
a Commission, to which he named the following: 

(1) Rev. Alexander Miller, Chairman 

(2) Mr. James Lynch Wilmington 

(3) For the Woman's Auxiliary to investigate and find out a 
good woman interested in Church architecture. 

NEW MARRIAGE CANON 

Bishop Wright explained that some instructions on the new 
Marriage Law are now in the hands of the printer and will be 
gotten out as quickly as possible. 

There was a discussion of the possibility of a joint meeting of 
the men and women of the Diocese. The following members of the 
Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary, appointed after the last 
Convention to discuss and study the possibilities of such, were 
present: 

Mrs. W. D. McMillan, Wilmington 



SIXTY-i OURTli ANNUAL CONVENTION 191 
1947 Minutes' of the Executive Council 

Mrs. Harry Walker, Washington 
Mrs. Louis Poisson, Wilmington 

It was decided that a Committee of three men be appointed by 
the Bishop to keep in touch with the three women of the Auxiliary. 
The Commitee would report at the Convention that we had discuss- 
ed this question at this time, and they would find out the reactions 
from the Convention. The Committee appointed was: 
Rev. Mortimer Glover, Chairman 
Rev. Alexander Miller 
Mr. Robert Strange 

A letter received from Miss Anne Barnwell expressing her 
appreciation to the Executive Council for their gift of $500.00 to 
her upon her retirement, was read. 

A request from St. Clement's Mission, in Beaufort, that they 
be removed from the status of an "Unorganized Mission" and be 
made a "Parochial" Mission "of St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, was 
read. This action has already been approved by St. Paul's Church. 
Mr. Gardner moved that this brought to the attention of the Chan- 
cellor of the Diocese, Mr. Grimes. 

Bishop Wright gave a brief discussion on the Good Shepherd 
Hospital. He commended the new Administrator, O. T. Faison, for 
his fine work. He mentioned the fact that the Good Shepherd 
Hospital is operating at a loss, which naturally throws it in the 
hands of the Finance Department. He has asked Mr. I. H. Smith, 
Treasurer of the Good Shepherd Hospital and Mr. O. T. Faison, 
Administrator, to appear before the meeting of the Finance De- 
partment next week. 

Mr. Ferneyhough stated that he had been requested by the 
Camp Leach Committee to propose that this Committee function as 
part of the Department of Religious Education. Mr. Ferneyhough 
moved that Mr. Gardner refer this authority to the Chancellor of 
the Diocese and bring it back to the members of the Executive 
Council. Moved and seconded. 

Mrs. Poisson inquired as to the type of insurance which should 
be carried on the Good Shepherd Hospital. Mr. Gardner replied 
that it has been incorporated (and same thing applies to Camp 
Leach), but he was requested to get Mr. Grimes to confirm this. 

It was decided that the next meeting of the Executive Council 
be held on the 13th of May, the afternoon of the Laymen's dinner, 
at 4 o'clock, in Beaufort. Motion passed that this be carried out in 
view of the fact that the 15th is Ascension Day. 

Mr. Gardner was requested to send suitable resolution to Mrs. 
John R. Tolar 



APPENDIX "GT" 



REPORTS FROM THE CLERGY 
The Rt. Rev. Thomas Darst, D.D., Wilmington, N. C. 

Summary of my activities in the Diocese of East Carolina for 
1946: Funerals 8, Baptisms 3, Wedings 7, Holy Communions 14, 
Confirmations 5, Sermons and addresses 35. 

Outside of Diocese: Weddings 1, Holy Communion 1, Sermons 
and addresses 24, Confirmations 222. 

Rev. Howard Alligood, Fayetteville, N. C. 

I regret not being able to look forward to attending the Con- 
vention, for I certainly miss the fellowship of the Brethern since 
I had to give up atending the meetings of the Church. 

I should especially enjoy being in Beaufort, at it is one of my 
favorite water-fronts. 

Official acts for 1946: Baptisms 2, Funerals 4, Marriages 2. 

Rev. J. M. Robeson, D.D., Orlando, Florida 

There is a big place in my heart for East Carolina. God bless 
you in your great work there. 

Rev. J. B. Brown, Washington, N. C. 

My report has been made to the Secretary of the Diocese for 
St. Stephen's, Haddocks Cross Roads, for 1946. I visited the sick 
45 times, and had the service of ''Visitation of the Sick'' for them. 
Celebrated Holy Communion 12 times. Preached 12 times at St. 
Stephen's. Marriages 6. Burials 8. Held services at the State Pri- 
son Institution. I have preached 8 special sermons. 

Wallace I. Wolverton, Chaplain (Lt. Col.) USA, Scott Field, 111. 

My duties have taken more and more of an administrative 
form, and the exercise of my priesthood has been considerably 
circumscribed by the nature of my work. However, in a broader 
conception of the Sacred Ministry I believe I am doing the Lord's 
work in the place He seems to have called me to labor. 

Rev. John Hartley, D.D., Kinston, N. C. 

I make the same report as for the past several years, no of- 
ficial acts. 

Rev. Wm. H. R. Jackson, N. C. Prison Dept., Raleigh, N. C. 

My official acts for the year 1946: Services 160. Celebrations 
of Holy Communion 8. Funerals 2. Marriages 1. Baptisms 6.

The regular Committees were appointed by the Bishop. 

C. McB. Davis spoke on the advisability of changing the 
Diocesan boundaries in the State after which Junius D. Grimes, 
Chancellor of the Diocese, presented the following resolution 
which was adopted: 

RESOLVED: 

THAT WHEREAS, there has for some time been discussion 
among the members of the Episcopal Church in the three Dioceses of 
North Carolina as to whether a change in the territorial limits of the 
three Dioceses would promote the best interest of the church and 
whether it would advance the work of the church to have two Dioceses 
instead of three Dioceses and whether if three Dioceses are retained, 
it would be better to change the dividing line between the Diocese 
of East Carolina and the Diocese of North Carolina and change the 
dividing line between the Diocese of North Carolina and the Diocese 
of Western North Carolina with the view of making the three Dioceses 
more nearly equal; 

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that a committee of six 
male members from this Diocese, composed of three clergymen and 
three laymen, be appointed by the Bishop of this Diocese during this 
convention to meet with like committees from the other two Dioceses 
in this State at a convenient place in the Diocese of North Carolina 
at a time within the next ensuing four months, the time and place 
of said meeting to be fixed by the secretary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina and each member of the respective committee shall be given 
not less than two weeks written notice of the time and place of meet- 
ing. Said committees shall jointly discuss carefully all phases of this 
matter and acting as one committee shall make recommendations to 
the three Dioceses within thirty day after the adjournment of said 
conference for such action as they think will best promote the 
interest of the Church in this State. Said recommendations to be 
sent promptly to the Bishop of each of the three Dioceses to be 
considered by the Dioceses respectively at their next Annual Con- 
vention. 

After its adoption the following telegrams were ordered 
to be sent:

Diocese of East Carolina in Convention this morning adopted unani-

Van Winkle. This permits cooperation between Committees from the 
three Dioceses to extent that Conference can be arranged. Hope your 
Diocese will pass similar resolution passed by Diocese of North Caro- 
lina yesterday. C. McD. DAVIS. 

The Bishop read his Annual Address. (See Appendix "A".) 

The following Committee was appointed to bring to the 
attention of the Convention recommendations made by the 
Bishop in his address: Fred L. Outland, Walter Hatch, Jr., and 
Rev. Mortimer Glover. 

Upon nomination by the Bishop, Junius D. Grimes was 
re-elected Chancellor of the Diocese for the year 1948-49. 

C. McD. Davis gave his report as member of the National 
Council. 

Junius D. Grimes, Chancellor of the Diocese, read his report 
which was as follows: 

REPORT OF THE CHANCELLOR 

The undersigned as Chancellor of the Diocese of East Carolina 
respectfully submits this as his report to the Sixty-fifth Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese: 

(1) There have been very few questions to arise relative to the 
marriage of divorced persons in this Diocese during the past year. 
The Canons passed covering this matter at the last General Convention 
appear to meet with general favor. 

(2) I have had occasion to draw several conveyances for the 
sale of property by the Trustees of the Diocese. 

(3) I served as one of the members of a committee of three on 
the relation between the Diocese and the Good Shepherd Hospital 
of New Bern and the committee made recommendations which I 
believe will clarify all questions that might arise under the existing 
relationship. 

(4) I have made recommendations to the Committee on Canons 
for the adoption of certain amendments. These recommendations are 
not radical in their nature, but simply clarify certain paragraphs 



22 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Standing Committee for Convention May 



in the Constitution and Canons, the meaning of which is not now 
entirely clear. This matter will be presented in detail in the report 
of the Committee on Canons. 

(5) I had the pleasure of going up to the Episcopal Seminary at 
Alexandria during the month of April. The information given myself 
and others by the authorities up there was startling in its nature and 
calculated to arouse the average layman from a condition of com- 
placency as to the future of the Church. The condition of this Institu- 
tion, I understand, will be presented in detail to the Convention by 
a member of its faculty. 

(6) The last Convention directed that the Constitution and 
Canons and Rules of Order be brought down to date and printed in 
permanent form under the supervision of the Chancellor and the 
Secretary. After considering the matter, it was thought best not to 
have the new editions printed until after the pending Convention 
in order that they might embody all changes made by this Convention. 
The Bishop approved this action in view of the fact that the new 
edition is expected to last for seven or eight years. 

Respectfully, 

JUNIUS D. GRIMES, Chancellor. 
May 12, 1948. 

The Rev. Chas. E. Williams, a member of the Committee on 
The State of the Church, made a short verbal report, stating 
that because of the inability of the Secretary to get the 
Parochial Reports from the Clergy and Vestries on time, no 
study on the State of the Church in the Diocese could be made. 

He reminded the Clergy and lay members of the Convention 
of the Canon which governs the making of these reports, 
stating specifically that it is the joint duty of the Clergy and 
Vestries to see that these reports are made and that they are 
sent to the Bishop or to the Secretary of the Diocese on or 
before the 1st day of February each year. 

The Report of the Standing Committee was read by John 
G. Bragaw, secretary of the Committee, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE OF THE DIOCESE OF 
EAST CAROLINA FOR THE CONVENTION YEAR 1947-1948

RESOULTION: TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMMISSION TO 

PROJECT A PROGRAM FOR MISSIONS FOR THE 

DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

WHEREAS: The Diocese of East Carolina is essentially a rural 
Diocese, and 

WHEREAS: The financial condition of the Diocese is endangered 
always by the high percentage of Missions which must be supported 
in the Diocese by a very small number of Parishes, many of which 
would have to revert to mission status should we be faced with another 
depression, and 

WHEREAS: There is no program in the Diocese for the develop- 
ment of new work in our Mission fields, nor are there any monies 
specifically designated year after year for such work. 

BE IT RESOLVED, THEREFORE, THAT THIS CONVENTION 
TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTION: 

1. That a Commission on Mission Planning and Strategy be 
appointed by the Bishop to serve for a period of one year, this Com- 
mission to be composed of nine members. The Bishop of the Diocese 
shall be a member of this Committee but only one member of the 
Executive Council and one member of the Department of Finance 
may serve thereon. 

2. It shall be the duty of this Commission: 

A. To make a thorough survey of each mission field and 
mission Church in the Diocese, this survey to include a history of 
the Church for the past forty years. 

B. To make a survey of all towns and rural communities in 
the Diocese where there is at present time no Episcopal Church. 

C. To present to the 1949 Convention a ten-year program of 
development for Mission work in this Diocese. In that report 
they will set worth: 

i. The proper arrangement and groups of the Mission 
Churches in the Diocese so that the full services of the clergy 
may be obtained. 

ii. Specific recommendations as to those few towns and 
rural communities in the Diocese where immediate grants 
should be made for the raoid development of a field or Church. 



26 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Resolutions May 



iii. A system of incentives to encourage all Missions to 
strive year after year for self-support. 

iv. An equitable plan for providing the travel expense 
for Missionary Clergy in a large field. 

3. That this Commission is to be appointed at the Convention 
and is to begin work immediately so that its duties will be completed 
by one year from this date. 

4. That this Commission must report to the Bishop and Execu- 
tive Council on or before April 1, 1949. This report is then to be 
printed and sent to the members of the 1949 Convention at least two 
weeks before that Convention is to be convened. 

5. That the Bishop shall be requested to reserve at least two 
hours on the 1949 Convention program for a full discussion of this 
Committee's findings and recommendations. 

6. That this resolution is in no way to effect the normal func- 
tioning of the Executive Council ,the Department of Mission and 
Church Extensions, or the Department of Finance. 

Mr. Peter B. Ruffin made a motion that this resolution be 
referred to the Executive Council of the Diocese with a recom- 
mendation that the Executive Council give it careful study. 
This was adopted. 

Mr. Junius D. Grimes, Chancellor of the Diocese, presented 
the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted: 

RESOLVED: 

THAT WHEREAS, the maintenance of the Episcopal Seminary 
at Alexandria, Virginia, at its present high standard of religious 
education and Christian character is necessary to train ministers 
qualified to carry on the work of the Church in the Diocese of East 
Carolina and elsewhere in the nation; and 

WHEREAS, there are now in the Diocese of East Carolina eigh- 
teen of the graduates of this institution; and 

WHEREAS, this Diocese is vitally interested in the welfare of 
this Seminary; and 

WHEREAS, this institution is now in great financial distress and 
cannot continue to function at its present standard of religious learn- 
ing and leadership without help from this Diocese and other Dioceses 
of our Church; and 

WHEREAS, the Diocese of East Carolina is anxious to do its full 
share in contributing to the physical equipment of this institution: 

NOW THEREFORE, we the Diocese of East Carolina, in conven- 
tion assembled, do hereby request the Bishop of the Diocese at this 
convention to appoint a committee of one as Diocesan Chairman to 
take charge of a campaign to raise the sum of $15,000.00, including

The Committee on Canons submits the following: 
That Canon 24 as it now exists is repealed and in lieu thereof there 
is substituted the following: 

Sec. 1. In conformity with the legislation adopted by the General 
Convention of 1913, pursuant to which The Church Pension Fund was 
duly incorporated, and in conformity with the Canon of the General 
Convention, "Of The Church Pension Fund", as heretofore amended 
and as it may hereafter be amended, the Diocese of East Carolina 
hereby accepts and acknowledges The Church Pension Fund, a cor- 
poration created by Chapter 97 of the Laws of 1914 of the State of 
New York as subsequently amended, as the authorized and approved 
pension system for the clergy of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 
the United States of America and for their dependents, and declares 
its intention of supporting said Fund in accordance with its Rules. 

Sec. 2. The Bishop of this Diocese shall appoint annually during 
the opening of the Convention a committee of the Church Pension 
Fund to consist of three presbyters and two laymen, for a term of one

and the Bishop may from time to time fill by appointment any vacan- 
cies in said Committee caused by resignation, death or inability to act. 
Sec. 3. The duties of said Committee shall be as follows: 

(a) To be informed of, and to inform the Clergy and laity 
of this Diocese of the pension system created by the General 
Convention and committed by it to the Trustees of The Church 
Pension Fund, in order that the ordained clergy of the Church 
may be assured of pension protection for themselves in the event 
of old age or total and permanent disability and for their widows 
and minor orphan children in the event of death. 

(b) • To receive reports from The Church Pension Fund from 
time to time, on the status of the pension assessments payable to 
said Fund, under its Rules and as required by Canon Law, by this 
Diocese and by the parishes, missions and other ecclesiastical

organizations within this Diocese. 

(c) To make an annual report to the Convention of this 
Diocese on such matters relating to The Church Pension Fund as 
may be of interest to the said Convention.

things necessary or advisable in the premises to the end that the 
clergy of this Diocese may be assured of the fullest pension pro- 
tection by said Fund under its established Rules. 

Sec. 4. It shall be the duty of this Diocese and of the parishes, mis- 
sions and other ecclesiastical organizations therein, each through its 
treasurer or other proper official, to inform The Church Pension Fund 
of salaries and other compensation paid to clergy by said Diocese, 
parishes, missions and other ecclesiastical organizations for services 
rendered, currently or in the past, prior to their becoming beneficiaries 
of said Fund, and changes in such salaries and other compensation as 
they occur; and to pay promptly to The Church Pension Fund the pen- 
sion assessments required thereon under the Canon of the General 
Convention and in accordance with the Rules of said Fund. 

Sec. 5. It shall be the duty of every clergyman canonically 
resident in or serving in this Diocese to inform The Church Pension 
Fund promptly of such facts, as dates of birth, of ordination or recep- 
tion, or marriage, births of children, deaths, and changes in cures or 
salaries, as may be necessary for its proper administration and to 
cooperate with said Fund in such other ways as may be necessary 
in order that said Fund may discharge its obligations in accordance 
with the intention of the General Convention in respect thereto. 

We ask that unanimous consent be given to the passage of the 
amendments and additions to the canons as above set out on this the 
day on which they are proposed, and that a similar consent be given 
to the passage of such canons and amendments without previous 
reference to a committee, all as provided for in Article XIV of the 
Constitution. 

Respectfully submitted,

Committee on Canons. 

TO THE RT. REV. THOMAS H. WRIGHT, BISHOP OF THE DIOCESE 

OF EAST CAROLINA, AND THE MEMBERS OF THE SIXTY-FIFTH 

ANNUAL CONVENTION OF SAID DIOCESE 

The Committee on Canons of your Diocese begs to submit the 
following report and recommendations for certain changes in the 
provisions of the constitution and canons and additions to them: 

(1) That Article 3 of the constitution be amended by striking 
out the words "on the fourth Wednesday in January" in line four of 
said section and at the end of said line after the word "such" add the 
words "time and", so as to make said section read in full as follows: 

"Section 1. There shall be an annual convention to meet within 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 

1948 Canon Proposal 

the Diocese at such time and place as may be determined by the 
preceding convention, or in the event of no such determination, at 
such time and place as may be agreed upon by the Bishop and stand- 
ing committee or appointed by the standing committee in case of the 
disability of the Bishop or a vacancy in his office." 

(2) Amend Section 1 of Article IV of the constitution by adding 
at the end of said section the following: "And if there be none such 
present, the convention shall elect its presiding officer." 

(3) That Section 2 of Article IX of the constitution be amended 
by striking out the word "convention" in line 2 of Section 2 and 
substituting the word "constitution". (This is obviously a typographical 
error.) 

(4) That subsection 3 of Section 1 of Canon 9 be amended by 
striking out the words added at the end of paragraph 3 by the amend- 
ment at the convention of 1945 and in lieu thereof insert the following: 

"The six clergymen and the six laymen composing a part of the 
executive council shall be divided into three groups, each group con- 
sisting of two laymen and two clergymen. Group number one shall 
be elected for one year. Group number two for two years and group 
number three for three years, and at the end of the term of each group, 
their succssors shall be elected for three years, the purpose being 
that at all times there shall be on the executive council four clergymen 
and four laymen who have had one or more years experience as a 
member thereof. No clergyman or layman who has served on the 
executive council shall be eligible for re-election until one year after 
the expiration of his existing term." 

(5) Strike out Section 1 of Canon 23 relating to the Bishop's 
salary and insert in lieu thereof the following: 

"The salary of the Bishop of the Diocese for the twelve months 
next ensuing after January 1, 1949, is hereby fixed at $6,500.00, to 
be paid in twelve equal monthly installments. Thereafter, the salary 
of the Bishop shall be not less than $6,000.00 nor more than $8,000.00. 
The department of finance shall each year at its meeting next preced- 
ing the annual Diocesan convention consider the proper amount of 
salary within the above limitations to be paid to the Bishop for the 
next twelve months beginning on the first day of January following 
the adjournment of the annual Diocesan convention, said salary to 
be paid in twelve equal monthly installments and said department 
of finance shall report its recommendations to the said convention for 
its consideration and decision and the amount of said salary for said 
period shall be fixed by said convention. The salary as above deter- 
mined includes all income received from the Bishop Watson Fund for 
the support of the Episcopate." 

(6) ' Amend Canon 10 by striking out at the beginning of said 
canon the words "at each annual convention there may and" and by 
adding to the said canon at the end thereof the following: "At each 
annual convention there shall be elected six clergy delegates and six 
lay delegates and six clergy alternates and six lay alternates to attend 
the provincial synod as a representative from this Diocese. These 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Good Shepherd Hospital May 



delegates and alternates shall have the same qualifications as the 
deputies to the general convention and shall be elected in the same 
manner." 

(7) There shall be provided by the secretary of the convention 
three official copies of the constitution, canons and rules of order as 
they now exist. Each certified by said secretary that it is a correct 
copy. One shall be delivered to the Bishop of the Diocese, one kept 
by the secretary of the Diocese and one delivered to the chancellor of 
the Diocese and as changes are made from time to time certified 
copies of said changes shall be furnished by the secretary to each of 
said officials to the end that there shall always be preserved for the 
use of the officials of the Diocese three sets of these documents. This 
shall be canon 30. 

(8) Amend the rules of order by adding the following: 
"Where a question arises which is not controlled by any of the 

existing rules or order, the Diocesan convention shall follow the rules 
of the general church pertaining to said question and if it has no rules 
applicable thereto, then the Diocesan convention shall be governed 
by the current edition of Robert's Rules of Order. This shall be known 
as Rule No. XXII." 

We recommended that the foregoing amendments to the con- 
stitution be approved by a majority of the present convention and 
then submitted to the next convention and if then approved by a 
majority of each of the two orders present, they shall become parts 
of this constitution provided the number of parishes voting shall be 
not less than fifteen, all as provided for in Article XV of the 
constitution. 

We ask that unanimous consent be given to the passage of the 
amendments and additions to the canons as above set out on this, the 
day on which they are proposed, and that a similar consent be given 
to the passage of such canons and amendments without previous 
reference to a committee, all as provided for in Article XIV of the 
constitution. 

Respectfully submitted,

JUNIUS D. GRIMES, H. E. RODGERS. 

Mr. Peter B. Ruffin, chairman of the Department of Finance, 
moved that the Budget, as presented by his department, be

Mr. Ossie T. Faison, superintendent of the Good Shepherd 
Hospital, New Bern, made the following report: 

REPORT OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL TO THE 
ANNUAL CONVENTION MAY 12, 1948 

Rt. Rev. Bishop Wright, members of the Convention, and friends. 
Today, it gives me great pleasure to give you some of the high- 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 31 



1948 Resolutions 



lights of the work at Good Shepherd Hospital during the calendar 
year of 1947. 

"Bricks, stones, and mortar do not make a Hospital. 
But rather, a hospital is a humanitarian institution; where the 
spirit of team work, sympathetic understanding, and community 
service is reflected in its personality." 
All of the above mentioned items fully describes T*he Good Shepherd 
Hospital. Therefore, it is our task and opportunity to build on this 
foundation that has been constructed so well during the past ten years. 

The year of 1947 marked another milestone for Good Shepherd 
Hospital. During the year, more than ever before, the community and 
friends from far away joined together in the support of the Hospital's 
program. Much of our work has been made possible by that most im- 
portant group which we call "Friends of the Good Shepherd Hospital." 
It is these people, in the various parts of the country and the Diocese, 
who make small contributions from time to time, who make it possible 
for us to carry on. Contributions in the form of linen and general 
hospital supplies have come in considerable abundance from the 
Women's Auxiliary of the Diocese of East Carolina. More and more 
people from the parishes and missions in the Diocese visited the 
hospital and gave us great encouragement by their interest. 

In the year of 1947, there were 825 patients admitted and a total 
of 122 new borns delivered in the hospital. This represented a total of 
7,441 days of care. There were a total of 296 major operations per- 
formed. 

Good Shepherd Hospital has many deferred maintenance prob- 
lems. However, during the year, with the help of the Diocese of East 
Carolina, we were successful in getting the exterior and portions of 
the interior painted. 

We are grateful that the encouragement of the Diocese has made 
it possible to have the very joyful experience of doing this work in 
the name of our Lord and His Church. I hope each of you will take 
home a pamphlet in the form of a "Report to the Community," a 
memorial to the late Rev. R. I. Johnson. Within it, we are also cele- 
brating the 10th anniversary of the hospital he founded. After you 
return to your respective communities, and you wish to have more 
of these booklets, we shall be glad to send them to you. 

In closing, I wish to say, in behalf of the hospital, trustees, and 
staff — we thank you with all our hearts for the work you are doing. 
Because — no community may rise beyond the health of its citizens. 

The Rev. Mortimer Glover, chairman of the Committee on 
the Bishop's Address, presented the following resolution which 
was unanimously adopted: 

RESOLVED, that this Convention requests the Department of 
Finance to consider suggesting to each aided Parish and Mission in 
the Diocese the adoption of a policy of gradually decreasing Diocesan 
support and increasing local self-support that they may eventually 
become self-supporting Parishes.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE OF THREE APPOINTED TO 

INVESTIGATE BUSINESS RELATIONS BETWEEN THE DIOCESE 

OF EAST CAROLINA AND THE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL 

IN NEW BERN. NORTH CAROLINA 

TO THE RT. REV. THOMAS H. WRIGHT, D. D., BISHOP OF 
THE DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA: 

We, the undersigned committee, beg to report that we met at 
Washington, North Carolina, on Thursday, April 29, 1948, for a 
consideration of this matter. After carefully reviewing such reports 
and accounts as could be found and considering the portion of the 
Revolving Fund of the Good Shepherd Hospital used by the Diocese 
of East Carolina for the carrying on of its other activities on the one 
hand, and on the other hand considering the amount of the funds 
advanced from time to time by the Diocese for the operation of the 
hospital, including approximately $3,500.00 advanced by the Diocese 
to the hospital in the year 1947, we are unanimously of the opinion 
that the payment of the sum of $2,000.00 by the Diocese of East 
Carolina to the Good Shepherd Hospital is a fair, just and equitable 
adjustment of all existing business relations between the parties, and

we recommend that payment of that amount by the Diocese in full 
settlement of all existing liabilities. 

Respectfully submitted, this May 1, 1948.

ST. PETER'S CHURCH, CHARLOTTE, N. C. 

ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION 

MAY 11. 1948 

THAT WHEREAS, there has for some time been discussion among 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 37 



1948 Resolutions 



the members of the Episcopal Church in the three Dioceses of North 
Carolina as to whether a change in the territorial limits of the three 
Dioceses would promote the best interest of the church and whether 
it would advance the work of the church to have two Dioceses instead 
of three Dioceses and whether if three Dioceses are retained it would 
be better to change the dividing line between the Diocese of East 
Carolina and the Diocese of North Carolina and the Diocese of Western 
North Carolina with the view of making the three Dioceses more 
nearly equal; 

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that a committee of six 
male members from this Diocese composed of three clergymen and 
three laymen be appointed by the Bishop of this Diocese during this 
convention to meet with like committees from the other two Dioceses 
in this state at a convenient place in the Diocese of North Carolina at 
a time within the next ensuing four months, the time and place of 
said meeting to be fixed by the secretary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina and each member of the respective committees shall be given 
not less than two weeks written notice of the time and place of meet- 
ing. Said committee shall jointly discuss carefully all phases of this 
matter and shall severally make recommendations to their respective 
Dioceses for such action as they think will best promote the interest 
of the church in this state. Said recommendations to be sent promptly 
to the Bishop or other ecclesiastical authority of the three Dioceses, 
to be considered by the Dioceses respectively at their next annual 
conventions. 

RESOLVED FURTHER that copies of this resolution be im- 
mediately sent to the secretaries of the other two Dioceses.

tion.

Appendix "A" 
THE BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity 
of the Diocese of East Carolina: 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and 
the Lord Jesus Christ." 

It is with a profound sense of thankfulness to God that I 
welcome you to the Sixty-fifth Annual Convention of the Dio- 
cese of East Carolina and the third over which I have had the 
privilege of presiding. 

This is the first Convention since I have been Bishop that 
my beloved predecessor in this Diocese, Bishop Darst, has at- 
tended. I will not embarrass him today by repeating the things 
I have said many times during the past two years, except to 
say that his presence today is a Benediction to this whole 
Convention. Bishop Darst will speak to the Convention tonight 
at our Annual Convention Service. 

The past year has been one of great joy and happiness, to all 
members of the Wright family, and I wish to express my 
appreciation to so many of you who have had a part in this. 
Each day, I thank God, that, in his gracious goodness, he has 
seen fit to call me to serve in this, my beloved section of His 
Vineyard. God grant that I may live up, in some measure, to 
the high calling and noble tradition which has been handed 
down to me. 

Since the last meeting of this Convention, one member of 
our Clergy family has gone to God's Eternal Kingdom in 
Heaven. The Reverend Howard A. Alligood, who has been 
retired for the past few years, died on January 6, 1948. The 
Rev. Mr. Alligood served his Master long and faithfully. His 
beautiful funeral service at Tolar-Hart Mission was the great- 
est tribute that he could have had. For an entire night and a 
day, those who loved him sat silently in the Church beside his 
body. The burial service was a note of great joy and triumph. 
May he go from strength to strength in God's life of perfect 
service. 

On February 19th, George Blow Elliott, Chancellor of the 
Diocese of East Carolina for many years, passed into God's 
loving arms. As a member of the National Council, as Chan- 



48 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

cellor of his Diocese, as a Deputy, many times, to the General 
Convention, and as Senior Warden of his Parish, this con- 
secrated and gifted Christian man served his Church well. 
Death removed a valiant servant from his earthly endeavors, 
but long will his work and life be felt in East Carolina and the 
things for which he stood will live on to the greater Glory of 
God. 

It is impossible, in this Address, to give adequate recogni- 
tion to all of the events of 1947, but I do want to call attention, 
at least, to new construction, renovations, and improvements 
in the physical condition of the following Churches that have 
been brought to my attention: Two Churches, Trinity Church, 
Lumberton, and St. George's Church, Pikeville, have built 
beautiful, new Parish Houses, each of which is a credit to its 
whole community. All of us should feel proud and happy that 
these two Churches have so added to the effectiveness of their 
witness for Christ in their community. For this, I would like, 
particularly, to commend the Rev. John H. Bonner, of Lumber- 
ton, and Colonel Edgar H. Bain, of Pikeville. Three other 
Churches have greatly improved their usefulness with exten- 
sive additions, construction, and work. Grace Church, White- 
ville, has almost double the size of the Parish House with a 
much-needed addition and has added other improvements to 
the Church, including the purchase of a new organ. Holy Cross, 
Aurora, has installed a new heating plant and organ and has 
made numerous other improvements. St. Andrew's, Wrights- 
ville, has installed a new organ, artistically landscaped and 
beautified the lawn of their lovely property, put in a new 
butane gas system for their Church and Parish House, painted 
and completely renovated the Church and Parish House, and 
made many other improvements. In addition to the above- 
mentioned organs, new organs have been installed in Emman- 
uel Church, Farmville; St. George's Church, Lake Landing, 
and St. Philip's Church, Southport, making a total of six new 
organs recently purchased and installed in the Diocese. In 
Christ Church, Elizabeth City, eighteen beautiful, new stained- 
glass windows have been installed, making this old and historic 
Church one of the most beautiful in the State. In addition to 
the above, much-needed renovation, repairs, and improvements 
have taken place in the following Churches: St. Thomas', At- 
kinson; All Souls, North West; St. Joseph's, Fayetteville; St. 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 49 

1948 Bishop's Annual Address 

Mark's, Roxobel; St. Philip's, Tar Landing, and St. Clement's 
Church, Beaufort. This Convention should extend its hearty 
congratulations to the Rectors of these Churches and to those 
who have had a part in these most necessary additions and 
improvements. 

Archdeacon of Wilmington Missions 

From the foregoing, it can be seen that the Churches served 
by the Rev. Richard L. Sturgis, Archdeacon of the Wilmington 
District, have made many physical improvements during the 
past year. In addition, the Churches, under his jurisdiction, 
have grown numerically in Communicants and in strength of 
leadership and development. I think it quite possible that 
during the next year, one of his Missions may be able to stand 
upon its own feet and become a self-supporting Parish. This 
is the type of growth and development that the Department of 
Finance is constantly trying to encourage in the Diocese and to 
which I shall later refer under the head of "Diocesan Financial 
Assistance". 

The work of the Rev. Mr. Sturgis would not have been 
possible, however, without the assistance and the splendid 
cooperation of the Diocesan Lay Readers, of whom he has 
charge, assisted by Mr. E. Clark Adams, of St. James' Church, 
Wilmington. To these Lay Readers, I feel deeply indebted, and 
I wish, at this time, to commend them, most sincerely and 
heartily, to this Convention. 

New Clergymen 

Since the last Convention of this Diocese, three new Clergy- 
men have been officially transferred and have come into our 
Diocesan family, the Rev. Edward M. Spruill, transferred from 
the Diocese of North Carolina and became Rector of Grace 
Church, Plymouth; the Rev. Bruce P. Williamson transferred 
from the Diocese of South Florida and became Rector of St. 
Joseph's Church, Fayetteville, and the Rev. William L. Martin 
transferred from the Diocese of Kentucky and became Rector 
of St. Paul's Church, Beaufort. In addition to these Clergymen, 
Mr. Robert F. Kirchgessner, Candidate for Holy Orders, is 
serving St. Anne's Church, Jacksonville, St. James', Ayden, 
and St. Barnabas', Snow Hill. As soon as the time element will 
permit and he passes the Examining Chaplains of East Caro- 



50 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

lina, Mr. Kirchgessner will be ordained and will continue 
serving these Churches as Priest-in-Charge. 

During the past two years, and with the addition of the 
names of two Priests, who have accepted appointments in the 
Diocese effective June 1st, a total of ten new Clergymen will 
have come into East Carolina. I am happy to announce that a 
real and useful contribution is being made by them to the life 
and work of our beloved Diocese. 

Negro Work 

As you will recall, in my Convention Address of last year, 
I was unable to report much progress in the acute and critical 
situation concerned with the shortage of our Negro Clergy, 
a condition not only in East Carolina but throughout the entire 
Church. Although the picture is not yet a bright one, I am 
happy to say that I am able to report considerable progress 
over last year. The physical condition of a number of our Negro 
Churches has been greatly improved and the Lay leadership of 
many of them has been strengthened and encouraged. I would 
like to commend, at this time, the White Priests serving near 
our vacant Negro Parishes and Missions for their unselfish 
service and assistance to their Negro Brethren in a time of 
Clergy shortage. I am glad to report that during the past year 
one new Negro Priest came into the Diocese of East Carolina 
and that two other outstanding Negro Clergymen have ac- 
cepted calls to the Diocese, effective June 1st. This make a total 
of four Negro Priests in East Carolina, and as far as I am able 
to determine, is the largest number of Negro Priests in any 
Diocese in the South, with the exception of the Dioceses in 
Virginia. 

The Good Shepherd Hospital, in New Bern, continues its 
useful ministrations to the sick and injured people of a con- 
stantly expanding area. Under the capable administration of 
the Superintendent, Mr. Ozzie T. Faison, the work of the 
Hospital is continually growing and becoming better known 
among our Negro Brethren. I would like to commend the 
Chairman of the Board of the Good Shepherd Hospital, Mr. 
John G. Dunn, Jr., of New Bern, for his unselfish and faithful 
service during the past year, the other members of the Board, 
and its Treasurer, Mr. Isaac H. Smith, a Vestryman of St. 
Cyprian's Church. Although the financial condition of the 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 51 

1948 Bishop's Annual Address 

Hospital has been considerably better this year, it still gives 
me great concern, and I feel that we must endeavor to put 
it upon a sounder financial basis. This is one of the great 
opportunities for service in East Carolina, and in the spirit of 
our Lord's Story of the Good Samaritan, let us seek to increase 
our usefulness and effective Christian witness in this area. 

Christian Education in the Diocese 

No phase of the life and activity of our Diocese is more 
important than the work done in our Church Schools and in 
the area of Adult Education. I believe that if our people 
understood better "the faith by which they live", the other 
problems of the Church would dissolve. The future of all of 
our Churches in East Carolina is largely determined by what 
is being taught our children and young people today. Last 
year, I mentioned the increasing use, in all denominations, of 
"Visual Education", and in this regard, a modern equipment 
for the showing of religious motion pictures is now owned by 
the Diocese and is at the disposal of Churches for several weeks 
at a time. This equipment may be secured by writing to Mr. 
Mac Lamb, of St. Mary's Church, Kinston. My purpose in 
purchasing this equipment was largely to encourage our 
Churches, through its use for several weeks, to purchase equip- 
ment of their own. 

One of the great opportunities for the promotion of religious 
education in East Carolina is through Camp Leach, our Sum- 
mer Diocesan Camp and Conference Center. Camp Leach is 
rendering a great and invaluable service to the Diocese, and 
at this time, I would like to commend, again, the Rev. John 
Bonner for his untiring efforts to make Camp Leach outstand- 
ing in the whole Church. I would like, particularly, to call 
your attention again this Summer to the Adult-Clergy Con- 
ference to be held in June under the direction of the Rev. 
James F. Ferneyhough, chairman of the Department of Chris- 
tian Education. Again this June, an outstanding faculty will be 
present, and it is my earnest hope that this Conference will 
be unusually well-attended. 

Fund for World Relief 

East Carolina was proud to receive commendation from all 
over the Church last year for its contribution to the Presiding 



52 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

Bishop's Fund for World Relief. According to the percentages 
and quotas of the General Church, East Carolina stood first 
in the entire Country, giving 225% of the Expectation of the 
National Council. This unselfish generosity on the part of our 
Diocese is true to the history and spirit of East Carolina. 

National Council Representative 

In my Convention Address of last year, I announced to the 
Diocese the distinct honor that had come to East Carolina with 
the election of Mr. Champion McDowell Davis, of Wilmington, 
to membership on the National Council. During the past year, 
Mr. Davis has given unselfish and outstanding service to the 
General Church, taking the leadership, many times, in matters 
of vital concern and policy in the Church's work and for its 
future. It is a source of great pride to East Carolina to know 
that the Diocese is making such a National contribution 
through one of its Communicants. 

The Virginia Seminary 

No Institution outside of the borders of East Carolina is 
closer to the hearts of our Clergy and people than the Virginia 
Theological Seminary, located near Alexandria, Virginia. Most 
of the Clergy of our Diocesan family have been educated there, 
and at the present time, three of our young men are preparing 
for the Ministry at the Virginia Seminary. Due to the need for 
new buildings, much-needed renovation, additions, and in- 
creased annual income, the Seminary is turning to its Alumni 
and friends at this time. I commend the needs of the Virginia 
Seminary particularly to your attention at this Convention, 
and I hope that considerable thought and some definite action 
may be taken to assure East Carolina doing its part for an 
Institution that has served the Diocese so long and so faithfully. 
A representative of the Virginia Seminary Campaign Fund 
has been especially invited to attend this Convention and to 
present the cause to those assembled. 

Confirmations 

I am happy to report that a splendid increase in Confirma- 
tions has resulted since the last Convention. In my Convention 
Address of last year, I reported 336 Confirmations for the year, 
1946. During the year, 1947, the total of Confirmations was 425, 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 53 

1948 Bishop's Annual Address 

or an increase of about 28 % . This represents more than the 
percentage increase that I requested and set our goal for in 
the Convention of last year. For this, I am truly thankful and 
deeply grateful. May I again commend this to my Brethren, 
both of the Clergy and Laity, in the spirit of and in keeping 
with our Presiding Bishop's Program of Evangelism for the 
whole Church. To set high goals for Confirmations does not 
mean, to me, proselytizing on the part of the Episcopal Church 
in our towns, as it is a well-known fact that in all of our com- 
munities and towns, there are Unchurched people having no 
active affiliation. It is to this group that I believe Christ is 
calling us today in no uncertain terms. 

As I close this, my third Convention Address to you as 
Bishop of East Carolina, may God bless our work for the exten- 
sion of His Kingdom in this part of His Vineyard, and may 
those of us who profess and call ourselves Christians assume 
the great responsibility that rests upon us today. We have 
heard, many times, the phrase, "Christianity or Chaos". We 
know today, definitely, that it is true. Communism is a re- 
ligion — a secular religion without God — the great modern rival 
of Christianity. The only way that it can be defeated in the 
long run is by making Christianity a more vital and a more 
effective force and answer to this troubled world. God grant 
that we may do our part, as Christians and as Episcopalians, to 
serve Him Who loved us and Who died for us. His message is 
the answer for this troubled world. "I, if I be lifted up," said 
Jesus, "will draw all men unto me." AMEN.

Good Shepherd Hospital. The Committee appointed by the Executive

The Committee of the Good Shepherd Hospital Board is composed 
of the following: Mr. John G. Dunn, Jr., Mr. I. H. Smith, treasurer; 
Mr. O. T. Faison, administrator. 

It was decided that these six men be empowered to come to the 
best decision they can, and the Diocese will pay the Good Shepherd 
Hospital what this group decides is owed. It was further moved by 
Mr. Hardy that this committee be given the power to sell any property 
owned by the Church at Bath which is not connected with the Church 
or Rectory and that this money be used to help pay off this debt. 
Seconded by Mr. Rountree. It was moved by Mr. Barrus that the 
committee be further empowered to work out a plan to subsidize the 
Hospital into an All-Protestant Hospital. 

It was moved by the Rev. Jack R. Rountree that Mr. Peter Browne 
Ruffin be elected vice-chairman of the Executive Council. Seconded 
by Mr. Gardner. Motion passed. 

Mr. Hardy reported a total of $7,772.70 (222%) collected to date 
for the "Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief". 

A motion was made that the sum of $3,000.00 be included in the 
1949 Diocesan Budget for Camp Leach with the understanding that it 
will be an operating fund for Camp Leach. Moved by Mr. Ferney- 
hough. Seconded by Mr. Rountree.

be adopted. Seconded by Mr. Bonner. Motion passed. 

Rev. Richard L. Sturgis and Rev. Julius A. Pratt were present 
for the discussion of work being done by Miss Jocelyn Gordon and 
Miss Jettie Odell in our Inland Waterway Missions and expressed 
their views of the situation. A discussion was held of the feasibility 
of transferring both workers to Wilmington to live or in transferring 
one to Wilmington and one to St. George's, Pikesville, in another part 
of the State. Mr. Ferneyhough moved that we go on record that this 
matter be left to the Bishop, Mr. Pratt, and Mr. Sturgis to decide and 
that they be given the power to act and do what is best. Bishop 
Wright asked that the above motion be amended by the Executive 
Council approving, in general, of the plan that Miss Jocelyn Gordon 
move to Goldsboro and that we take to the Finance Department the 
plan of an adequate salary for her to live in Goldsboro; that Miss 
Jettie Odell move to Wilmington and that we take to the Finance 
Department the plan of an adequate salary for her to live in Wilming- 
ton. Also, that a new automobile be purchased for Miss Odell, the 
Diocese helping with the down-payment but rest of payments being 
borne by Miss Odell. Motion passed as amended. 

Bishop Wright reported that the only vacancies in the Diocese 
were in the colored churches.

placed in the Parish and Mission Budgets was discussed; also, the

in his home in Wilmington. 

The secretary was asked to send a telegram to Mr. A. K. Barrus 
who was sick at Duke Hospital. 

On invitation of the Bishop, the Rev. John Grainger, host of the 
next Diocesan Convention, was present to discuss plans for the 
Convention. The Council approved the plans and also the date of the

announced that his Department would meet the next week in the 
same office. 

Mr. Bruce Bateman, chairman of the Department of Missions,

meeting before calling a Rector. The Bishop spoke on a 10-year 
de-volution plan.

Fund for World Relief. He also stated that all Parishes and Missions 
had received the blanks for the Parochial Reports of 1947. 

The Bishop reported that he had not been successful in getting a 
suitable Colored Priest for St. Cyprian's Church in New Bern, but 
was spending a great deal of time and effort in getting one, not only 
for that Parish, but for other vacancies in the Diocese. He stated that 
the Rev. William L. Martin would become Rector of St. Paul's Church, 
Beaufort on March 1, 1948. 

The Secretary was asked to contact Mr. John G. Bragaw and to

The Trustees of the Diocese were given authority to sell the 
Church Building and lot in Warsaw, since it was no longer being used 
by the Church.

The securities were inspected by us on April 17, 1948, same being 
located in a safety deposit box at the Security National Bank, Wil- 
mington, N. C. All securities were on hand with the exception of the 
Goldsboro Union Station Bonds, which, according to a letter signed by 
Mr. J. V. Grainger, are held in trust by the Trustees, Diocese of East 
Carolina. Your attention is called to our comment of April 17, 1947, 
concerning the Notes Receivable of the Bath Restoration Fund. As 
authorized by the Minutes of the Executive Council, dated October 7, 
1947, real estate at 1311 Chestnut Street, Wilmington, N. C, was sold 
for $6,000.00. Proceeds fro mthis sale are held by the Trustees, Dio- 
cese of East Carolina. Other Assets are shown as reflected by the 
records. Funds on deposit with the Wilmington Savings and Trust 
Company, Wilmington, N. C, were reconciled with the records of and 
confirmed by the Depository. 

In our opinion, based upon such examination and subject to the 
foregoing comments, the accompanying statement correctly sets forth 
the financial condition of the Diocese at December 31, 1947, and the 
Receipts and Disbursements for the year then ended.

REPORT OF TRUSTEES, DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Wilmington, North Carolina 

December 31, 1947 

May 10, 1948 

To Board of Trustees, Diocese of East Carolina, 

Wilmington, N. C. 

Gentlemen: 

We have examined the accounts and records of various Trust Funds, 
as maintained by your Treasurer, Mr. Robert Strange, for the period 
from April 1, 1947, through December 31, 1947, and submit herewith 
the results of such examination on the following exhibits: 

Recapitulation of fund balances, Income, Exhibit "A"; Principal, 
Exhibit "A". Receipts and Disbursements, all funds, Exhibit "B". 

Our examination embraced tracing of receipts, as shown by the 
books and records, to the depository. All disbursements were made 
from the depository, the Wilmington Savings and Trust Company, 
Wilmington, N. C, and supported by cancelled vouchers. Distribution 
of funds to beneficiaries of the particular fund were accepted as 
correct. Funds on deposit with the depository were reconciled with the 
records of the depository as of December 31, 1947. Securities, held for 
safe keeping in a safe deposit box at the Bank of Wilmington, Wilming- 
ton, N. C, were inspected by us on May 8, 1948. Real estate, owned 
by the Trustees, was accepted as correct and deeds were not inspected. 
Your attention is called to the comments pertaining to real estate 
in the audit report for the year ended March 31, 1946, and to the land 
sale to Emeline Northcutt during the year ended March 31, 1947. 
During the period under review $25.00 was collected from Emeline 
Northcutt and this collection was again handled as a down payment 
on real estate sales — see the Rev. Edward M. Forbes estate. 

We have shown certain transfers within funds, particularly, with 
the Miscellaneous and Joint Bond Accounts, as memoranda under 
receipts and disbursements of the respective funds and as actual 
receipts and disbursements in the above named accounts. 

CERTIFICATE 

In our opinion, based upon such examination, and subject to the 
foregoing comments, the accompany Exhibits fairly present the condi- 
tion of the funds held by the Board of Trustees at December 31, 1947. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. B. McCABE & COMPANY,

Appendix "F" 

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE 
DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Right Reverend Father in God, and Members of the Convention: 

I bring to you the report of the East Carolina Branch of the 
Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council with a deep feeling of 
gratitude and praise — gratitude that I have been privileged to come 
in touch with these workers, and praise for the devotion of these 
women to the Master's service. 

Reports, like examinations, are not always fair. They give you the 
highlights of the work that has been done. They leave out the small 
advances made by the faithful worker who lets nothing bar her 
way — and they leave out, also, the record of opportunities that have 
not been grasped because of lack of faith in the Church's Mission. 

The Officers and the Department Chairmen have been very active, 
and have done the real detail work of the Auxiliary, keeping before 
the women the needs of their departments and the information neces- 
sary to quicken their interests. I extend grateful thanks to these 
Diocesan Officers for their faithfulness and untiring efforts. The sense 
of comradeship among them and the willingness to share their talents 
each with the other has meant a great deal to the progress of the 
work. To them, and to the women of East Carolina, goes all the credit 
for progress made in the work of the Auxiliary. We are very grateful 
to Bishop Wright and to the Clergy of the Diocese for the help and 
consideration given the Auxiliary. 

The Auxiliary is composed of Parish Branches seeking ways to 
make the Parish work more effective and it is also a corporate body 
with interest not only in the Parish and Diocese but in the length and 
breadth of the whole world. 

This year has been a year of growth for the Auxiliary in the 
Diocese of East Carolina. Spiritual growth was indicated by the num- 
ber of Corporate Communions and by the observances of Churchwide 
Day of Prayer, World Day of Prayer and World Community Day. 
Educational growth was indicated by the number of Branches having 
definite educational programs, by the use of Church literature and 
by a greater number of women attending our Diocesan Adult Con- 
ference at Camp Leach. We had growth in numbers — both in the 
number of members and in the number of Branches. There has been 
a healthy growth in giving. Figures are not always an indication 
of the most fundamental growth in any group, but the steady growth 
in the amount contributed by the women is indicative of growth that 
is fundamental and vital. 

During the past year $34,704.28 has been given by the women 
of the Diocese in all areas of service, including the United Thank 
Offering. This represents actual cash gifts and is an increase of $6,- 
704.28 over last year. 



SIXTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 103 



1948 Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



Many of the Auxiliaries have increased their membership and, 
except for several large Parishes who have lately adopted the Unified 
Plan, these increases have been in the small Auxiliaries. It is a health- 
ful sign when an Auxiliary of twelve members increases its member- 
ship to twenty in one year and one with eight members has interested 
twelve non-church women in joining and working with them. On the 
reports this year several of the small Auxiliaries made the notation 
"The Auxiliary is the only organization in the Parish." These women 
serve in every capacity from janitor to Altar Guild and they keep 
the spark of the Church alive when there is no Rector. 

Through the Department of Christian Education the women have 
studied India, The Christian and Race, The Christian Faith, the Chris- 
tian Home, The Christian Church, The World Mission of the Christian 
Church, Christianity Takes a Stand, Bishop Dun's Meditations, For- 
ward Movement Literature, Church Papers, Alaska, Leper Work, 
conditions in Europe, Church Architecture and Furnishings, The 
Church Calendar, The Presiding Bishop's Book for Lent, and, of course, 
the Bible and Prayer Book. Twenty-six Branches reported studying 
the Prayer Book during Lent. They have also studied many of the 
mission fields of the Church. 

Nineteen branches of the Auxiliary were represented at the Adult 
Conference at Camp Leach last June, and six at the Kanuga Con- 
ference. 

Under the Christian Social Relations Department almost every 
Auxiliary in the Diocese has had programs on Juvenile Delinquency 
and in many cases these programs have materialized into a real plan 
of action, with committees to devise ways and means of formulating 
a sound and constructive program. Homes of underprivileged children 
have been visited and conditions improved as a result. Some of the 
Auxiliaries take an active interest in Girl Scouts and there has been 
a real effort made by our Branches in a number of communities to 
prevent the youthful first offender from appearing in Juvenile Court. 
Under this Department the Branches report full cooperation in helping 
to raise the money requested of our Diocese for the Presiding Bishop's 
Fund for World Relief. Under this Department the women studied 
Christian Family Life, the new marriage canon, citizenship, race rela- 
tions and international relations. Flowers and magazines were dis- 
tributed to the sick and aged in every Parish by members of the 
Auxiliary. Visits were made to jails, county homes and hospitals 
from time to time. Three thousand, one hundred and eighty-nine gar- 
ments were given to underprivileged families. Almost nine hundred 
dollars was given to community institutions. Almost six hundred 
dollars was given to the Thompson Orphanage, besides used clothing, 
Christmas gifts and contributions to the Children's Allowance Fund. 
Several Auxiliaries carry building and loan shares to be given gradu- 
ates when they leave the Orphanage. The value of Christmas boxes 
reported for home and abroad amount to more than a thousand dollars. 
Contributions were made to the Good Shepherd Hospital and to Galilee 
Mission. 

Through the Supply Department boxes were sent to Galilee Mis- 



104 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 



sion, the Inland Waterway Missions and other missions in the Diocese. 
The contribution to foreign aid was much larger than the preceding 
year. 

The work of the Church Periodical Club has increased. Many 
magazines are sent by subscription and many remailed. Bibles, Prayer 
Books and Hymnals have been sent where needed. Books, leaflets, 
greeting cards, music and records have been sent. Pictures, calendars, 
games and scrapbooks have been sent to children in hospitals. Money 
was given for books for St. Hilda's School in China, where we have 
our own missionary, Miss Venetia Cox. Books were sent as gifts to 
missionaries and money for the Mary E. Thomas Memorial Fund, 
which furnishes books for mission libraries where needed. 

Through the Department of Missions we sent a Christmas gift of 
ten dollars to each of our seven Diocesan missionaries representing 
us at home and abroad, and a gift of fifty dollars to our own Dr. Lulu 
Disosway for the hospital in Alaska after the flood there. Two hun- 
dred dollars was sent to Rev. William Gordon for his work at Point 
Hope, Alaska. 

The Auxiliary has a Memorial Fund which was started some few 
years ago and about which we would like to tell you. When a woman 
member of the Parish dies the Auxiliary in that Parish is asked to 
send a gift of money to the chairman of this fund in memory of the 
life of that woman instead of sending flowers at the time of the 
funeral. The chairman then writes a note to the next of kin telling 
that this has been done. This fund is growing very slowly but when 
it is large enough it will be used for the education of some young 
woman for missionary work. What more beautiful memorial could 
there be for those we love than sending out others to spread the gospel. 
Anyone may contribute to this fund at any time in memory of faithful 
loved ones who have passed on to the life of larger service. 

The United Thank Offering, in the Diocese, amounted to $7,713.09 
last year. The women gave $615 to Leper Work, to the Bishop's 
Fund, and more than $500 was sent from the Auxiliary to the Presiding 
Bishop's Fund for World Relief. 

The Convocational Meetings were held in October and the Annual 
Meeting in January and were well attended. Evangelism was the 
theme of these meetings. Evangelism is the theme of the Church. As 
we strive to emphasize this theme of Evangelism I am sure that I 
speak for every member of the Auxiliary in East Carolina when I say 
that we know that only as we strengthen the vitality of our own 
discipleship can we hope to contribute to God's great purpose of 
redemption of the world. The tasks of the Woman's Auxiliary are set 
very clearly before us. May we bring all our gifts — all that we have 
gained in the past, all of our renewed consecration, our best thought 
and intelligence and our highest courage to going forward in the 
prf>»* purpose for which we are organized. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARY OWEN SUTHERLAND, President 

Woman's Auxiliary, Diocese of East Carolina.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF 
THE CHURCH— 1949 

The Rev. Charles E. Williams, chairman of the Committee on The 
State of The Church read the following report: 

Last year your committee was unable to make any report to this 
convention due to the fact that quite a number of the clergy failed to 
send to the Bishop their annual parish report — as required by canon — 
in time for the information to be compiled by this committee. Again 
this year we cannot give an accurate report for the same cause. Your 
committee recommends that definite action be taken by this convention 
to enforce the canonical provision that a full and complete parochial 
report be sent to the proper authorities in a reasonable time before each 
convention. 

This committee has examined the available statistics of the diocese 
for the year 1948 and takes pleasure in submitting this report. 

A panorama of the work and achievements in our diocese for the 
year 1948 shows much for which we can thank Almighty God and fake 
courage for our work in the future but the picture is not a perfect one 
and our failures should spur us on to greater endeavor and cooperation 
for the year that lies ahead. 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 19 



1949 Report of Committee On State of Church 



On the basis of information in our hands we find that in the diocese 
during the previous year there were 397 baptisms compared with 422 
for the previous year; there were 411 persons confirmed, making a total 
number of confirmed persons 9,161, — but the parochial reports show 
only a total number of 8,769 communicants which shows a loss of 396 
confirmed persons. This is a terrible loss and there must be a discrep- 
ancy in parish bookkeeping. In 73 parishes and missions the list of 
confirmed persons and communicants are the same number, but in 18 
parishes that list of a total of 3,276 confirmed persons claim only 2,880 
communicants. There were 81 marriages performed last year in the 
diocese compared to 124 the previous year. 

Our Sunday Schools have made fine and definite progress in the 
past year with an enrollment of 4,118 pupils and with 476 officers and 
teachers compared with 3,608 pupils and 464 officers and teachers the 
year before. This committee would like to congratulate all the faithful 
lay men and women who have given of their time and efforts to make 
this growth possible. They are indeed a noble army and are doing 
splendid work for the Kingdom of God and His Church. 

Financially the diocese seems to be in a very healthy condition. 
The apportionments for the previous year were $48,696.80 against 
$48,501.56 for the year 1947. The quota for the National Church of 
$10,400.00 has been paid. An amount of $8,510.88 was contributed by 
the communicants of this diocese for the Presiding Bishop's Fund for 
World Relief. Our diocesan treasurer of the Laymen's Thank Offering 
reports that $1,734.31 was presented by the men of the diocese. This 
is a splendid offering but this committee feels that this offering can 
be increased by a little more cooperation on the part of individual 
parishes and missions. This money is used entirely for work within 
the borders of our own diocese and there are definite needs that our 
Cishop cannot answer unless he has the funds. 

We are happy to say that Good Shepherd Hospital in New Bern is 
making a fine contribution now to our Colored work under the splendid 
leadership of Mr. O. T. Faison. At Good Shepherd there is to be found 
an ever expanding horizon of a healing ministry among the sick and 
diseased of the Colored population of that area. 

One of our acute problems in the diocese today is the shortage of 
Colored clergy to man our negro churches. Two fields are desperately 
in need of clergymen — St. Joseph's Church, Fayetteville; and Belhaven 
Mission Field. Then, too, there are many of the Colored churches in our 
diocese badly in need of repairs. Every effort should be made to 
strengthen our Colored work and to keep their churches in such repair 
that their attractiveness will be conducive of the worship of Almighty 
God. 

As this committee surveys the progress of our diocese, and the 
work that has been done in the past year, our report would not be com- 
plete without mentioning the names of several of our laymen who have 
made outstanding contributions to our work, and we wish at this time 
to pay them tribute for their sacrificial service. Mr. Junius D. Grimes 
of Washington has made an outstanding contribution as chairman of

Report of Standing Committee for Convention May 



the Diocesan Realignment Committee and lias worked hard upon this 
for the whole year. Mr. Will G. Gaither of Elizabeth City has made 
a real contribution as chairman of the Virginia Theological Seminary 
Campaign Fund. He has given of his time and energy unstintedly. Mr. 
Peter Browne Ruffin of Wilmington has made an outstanding contri- 
bution as Vice-Chairman of the Executive Council and Chairman of the 
Finance Department. Through his efforts many financial problems of 
the diocese have been readjusted and solved. Mr. Frank F. Fagan of 
NewBern has made a splendid contribution to the diocese during the 
past year as Diocesan Treasurer of the Laymen's Thank Offering. Mr. 
Fagan has been active in the Laymen's Thank Offering from the very 
beginning of this offering and his work has required much of his time 
and effort. 

This committee has no specific recommendations to the Convention 
at this time and submits this general survey with gratitude to Almighty 
God for His blessings in the past and invoking His blessings for the 
work and future of our beloved diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 
CHARLES E. WILLIAMS, Chairman.

Campaign be continued by the same Committee until the full amount 
be raised. This motion was carried. 

The Bishop appointed the regular and special Committees. These 
will be found on page 6 of this Journal.

RESOLVED FURTHER, that the "Committee from Diocese of East 
Carolina" be actively continued in the hope that progress may be made 
with the two other Dioceses toward the objective recommended by the 
"Committee from Diocese of East Carolina." 

RESOLVED FURTHER, that because of state-wide importance of 

the statistical and other data embodied in the report and which was 
gathered with care by the "Committee from Diocese of East Carolina", 
it is the unanimous view of the Convention that such statistical and other 
data should become a permanent record. 

RESOLVED FURTHER, that the complete "Report of Committee 
from Diocese of East Carolina on Re-Alignment of Diocesan Boun- 
daries" be published in the 1949 Journal of the Diocese of East Carolina. 
Also that same be published in "THE MISSION HERALD", and that 
offer be made to the proper authority of the Diocese of North Carolina 
and of the Diocese of Western North Carolina, respectively, to publish 
in the 1949 Journal of East Carolina the report from the respective 
Committees in those Dioceses dealing with same subject, and with 
request that the 1949 Journals in the two other Dioceses likewise publish 
in full the report of the "Committee from Diocese of East Carolina" 
so that in such manner the recommendation of each Committee may 
become available throughout the three Dioceses. 

RESOLVED FURTHER, that if this latter recommendation be not 
adopted by the Diocese of North Carolina and/or the Diocese of Western 
North Carolina, that the report of "Committee from Diocese of East

(See Appendix "E"). 

Robert Strange presented the Treasurer's report. (See Appendix 

"F"). 

The Rev. Jack R. Rountree gave his report on the Mission Herald, 
as follows: 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE MISSION HERALD 

Reverend Father In God and 
Brethren of the Convention: — 

The present board of publications, created by the act of the diocesan 
convention of 1936, has now completed three years of service. It is with 
deepest regret that I have to report the disintegration of the board. 
The Reverend Roscoe C. Hauser, Jr., is leaving the diocese this month 
to enter upon work in Gainesville, Florila; the Reverend John C. Grainger 
will retire from the board at the conclusion of this year's publication — 
the July issue — and will leave the diocese in October for work in Ruxton, 
Maryland. This is a severe blow to the staff of the paper. 

The Rev. Mr. Hauser has been a most valuable associate, since the 
creation of the new board of publication, and was a sharer in the de- 
termination of the policy with which the publication was undertaken. 
He created the "Personnel Briefs" and has carried that department from 
the very beginning; he has been the author of the "Box" on the front 
page in which the paper has appealed for donations to the support of 
the paper. He has written many of the news articles, and re-written 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 25 

Report of Committee On The Mission Herald May 

many of the submitted articles that had to be recast. His work has 
attracted the interest of people throughout the diocese and many places 
throughout the country. There is no one who can possibly take his 
place. 

The Rev. John C. Grainger was added to the staff upon his return 
from service with the army of occupation in Germany. He has had 
full charge of the Youth work and edited the special pages devoted to 
youth items, and has also written a monthly column of youth personals. 
He has also written many of the news articles and done a lot of the 
re-write work. There is no one who can take his place. 

The Rev. John W. Hardy was given the difficult task of handling 
all the financial matters and the circulation of the paper. This has been 
a stupendous task, which he has performed with a faithfulness and 
patience that are most commendable. 

Mrs. McEachern was assigned the work of editing all items con- 
cerning the work of the Woman's Auxiliary. Her removal from the 
diocese resulted in the appointment of Mrs. Sam Marsh, of Washington, 
to the editorship of the women's page, and she has done an excellent 
work. 

All the rest of the work of publication has fallen to the chairman 
of the board and editor. And the editor wishes to pay his tribute to the 
fine work that his associates have done — without which there could have 
been no paper. 

On behalf of the entire staff I want to say that the paper has been, 
since its beginning, the work of the combined staff, who have worked 
together in perfect accord, and with nothing but the interest of the 
paper in mind. No one of the entire staff has received one penny for 
the work that he has done; and each one has had to spend quite a lot 
of money each year in order to carry on the work of the Mission Herald. 
The men on the board have also been engaged in very active ministry 
in their own fields of growing churches. 

We undertook the publishing of the Mission Herald with certain 
definite objectives: To put a copy of the paper into every home in the 
diocese; to cover as fully as possible the items of news about the 
churches in the diocese; to finance the paper through voluntary contri- 
butions, or donations. This we have done so far as has been possible 
under all the circumstances. 

We feel that we have given the diocese a good paper. We know 
that with better cooperation we could have gotten out a much newsier 
paper. But we are appreciative of the cooperation that we have received. 

So coming to the end of our tenure, we wish to thank those who have 
helped us, and to wish our successors the very best of goodwill. 

Respectfully submitted, 
JACK R. ROUNTREE, editor and chair- 
man of the board of publication of the 
Diocese of East Carolina. 

We shall of course complete the year— publishing the paper through 
the July issue. 

The Rev. Mr. John W. Hardy will report on the financial condition 
of the Mission Herald.

enable it to maintain its organization as a Parish, and the said Parish 
having requested that it be reduced from its status as a Parish to the 
status of a Mission, it is so ordered and the Church of St, Anne's is now 
declared to be a Mission. 

It is further ordered that the property belonging to the late Parish

30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



1949 Resolutions 



Wallace C. Murchison presented the following report: 

Report of the committee appointed to consider the gift of the Bogue 
Island property, consisting of Mr. Wallace C. Murchison, Chairman, the 
Rev. E. F. Moseley, and Mr. C. R. Davant. 

At a meeting of the Committee with the Chancellor, Mr. Junius D. 
Grimes, the deed signed by Mrs. Alice Hoffman and members of the 
Roosevelt family was examined. It conveys to Bishop Wright, Mr. H. C. 
Rorison, and Mr. Robert Strange, Trustees of the Diocese of East 
Carolina, a tract of land on Bogue Island, Carteret County, N. C, The 
tract has 1,500 foot frontages on the Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Sound 
and contains approximately 62 acres. Excepted from the deed is the 
right of way of the state highway from Atlantic Beach to Salter Path 
and the riparian rights including the right to use all land necessary to 
operate seines in the ocean. 

The deed states that the property is to be used for a camp site and 
conference center for young people and adults and for other religious 
purposes, and the gift is subject to three conditions. (1) The Diocese 
has 5 years in which to put the property in condition for some of the 
uses above mentioned. If the property is not used by the Diocese within 
5 years, the donors may take the property back. (2) The conditions on 
use of the property continue for an additional 50 years. At the end of 
55 years title vests absolutely in the Diocese. (3) The donors reserve 
the right to fish with seines on the ocean front beach. 

The Committee feels that this gift is a most generous and valuable 
one, the conditions as to use of the property can be met without difficulty, 
and the site holds great promise as a camp and conference center for the 
Diocese of East Carolina. Therefore, the Committee moves the adoption 
of the following resolution: 

"Resolved that the Convention of the Diocese of East Carolina 
accepts with grateful appreciation the generous gift of Mrs. Alice 
Hoffman, Mr. and Mrs. William McMillan, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore 
Roosevelt III, Mr. Cornelius Roosevelt, and Mrs. Quentin Roosevelt, of 
the camp site and conference center on Bogue Island, Carteret County, 
N. C, that the property shall be designated the Quentin Roosevelt Me- 
morial Site, and that a Committee be appointed by the Bishop to 
draw up a suitable resolution of thanks to be sent, in the name of this 
Convention, to each of the donors. 

The Bishop appointed the same Committee, namely, Wallace C. 
Murchison, the Rev. E. F. Moseley, and C. R. Davant to write these 
resolutions. (See Appendix "J"). 

The Bishop appointed the Rev. Alexander Miller and O. E. Rhem 
to prepare a suitable memoral page in the Diocesan Journal for the 
late beloved Bishop Thomas C. Darst.

Born November 10, 1875 — Died September 1, 1948 

Third Bishop of the Diocese of East Carolina 

1915 — 1945 

"God's best interpreters are humble human souls; 
The gospel f a life is more than books and scrolls." 

For his devotion and his service to Christ and his 
Church; for his life and love and gentle spirit; we 
praise Thee, O God.

abiding influence in our lives; for the memories we 
cherish of our friend and Bishop; we thank Thee, 
O God.

His saints. 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 35 

1949 Bishop's Address 

APPENDIX "A" 
THE BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity: 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father and the Lord 
Jesus Christ." 

I welcome you today to the Sixty-Sixth Annual Convention of the 
Diocese of East Carolina and the fourth over which I have had the 
privilege of presiding. 

Since the last meeting of this Convention, on the date of September 
1, 1948, the Rt. Rev. Thomas Campbell Darst, D.D., the beloved Bishop 
of this Diocese for thirty years, passed into God's eternal hands. Bishop 
Darst was present with us at the Convention last year and gave us 
his final message and benediction. I have said, many times during the 
past three and one-half years, how much Bishop Darst has meant to me 
in my own life and Ministry. His loving, affectionate, and radiant 
Christian spirit will be sorely missed by all of us who were his children, 
who knew him, loved him, and admired his wonderful personality so 
deeply. I will ask the Members of this Convention to rise as we re- 
member together today his spiritual presence. . . Let us pray: 

"Almighty God, we remember this day before thee thy faithful 
servant, Thomas Campbell, and we pray thee that, having opened to 
him the gates of larger life, thou wilt receive him more and more into 
thy joyful service; that he may win, with thee and thy servants every- 
where, the eternal victory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." 

We meet today in St. John's Church, Fayetteville, a Church that 
has a long record of fine usefulness in this Diocese. I know that I 
speak for all present at this Convention when I say how happy we 
are to be here, and when I extend to the Rector of St. John's and his 
congregation our appreciation for their most gracious invitation and 
hospitality. 

CLERICAL CHANGES IN THE DIOCESE 

During the year 1948, two Clergymen were lost to the Diocese by 
transfer; the Reverend William B. Daniels, Jr., was transferred to the 
Diocese of Southern Ohio, and the Reverend Harvey W. Glazier was 
transferred to the Diocese of North Carolina. During this same year, 
five Clergymen were added to the Diocese by transfer: The Reverend 
Arthur D. Bridgers was transferred to us from the Diocese of South 
Florida; the Rev. William L. Martin, from the Diocese of Kentucky; 
the Rev. Joseph H. Banks from the Diocese of West Virginia; the Rev. 
Granville V. Peaks, Jr., from the Diocese of Southern Virginia; and 
the Rev. W. Alfred Wilkins from the Diocese of Texas. All of these 
Clergymen are making splendid contributions in their respective Fields. 

Although the date of their departure is not statistically contained 
in their report, I would like to take note, at this time, of the splendid 



36 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Address May 



work that has been done by three men who, having served faithfully 
in their present Churches, have been called to Fields of larger usefulness, 
effective in the near future. — The Rev. John C. Grainger, one of our 
own East Carolina boys, who, for the past ten years, has been Rector 
of St. Stephen's Church, Goldsboro, has been called to the Diocese of 
Maryland. The Rev. Roscoe C. Hauser, Jr., who, for the past three 
years, has been Rector of St. Paul's Church, Greenville, has been called 
to the Diocese of Florida and the Rev. Julius A. Pratt, Rector of Grace 
Church, Whiteville, who has been called to the Diocese of Tennessee. 
All of these Clergymen have done outstanding work in East Carolina, 
and our prayers and best wishes go with them as they continue to grow 
in usefulness in the services of their Mastelr in the years to come. 

One of the most beloved Clergymen of our Diocese, the Rev. John 
W. Hardy, was called, effective January 15, 1949, to become Rector of 
St. John's Church, Wilmington, upon the retirement of the Rev. Edgar 
W. Halleck. The Rev. Mr. Hardy, his wife, and little girl have already 
won their way into the hearts of the people of Wilmington and are 
rendering a real service to their Church, the Diocese, and the Community. 

Upon becoming Rector Emeritus of St. John's Church, Wilmington, 
the Rev. Edgar W. Halleck assumed, voluntarily, many Missionary re- 
sponsibilities in the Southern end of the Diocese. Mr. Halleck is of 
inestimable help to the Diocese at this time. After twenty-three years 
of faithful, loyal, and consecrated service as Rector of St. John's Church, 
Wilmington, Mr. Halleck is known and beloved throughout East Caro- 
lina. 

ACHIEVEMENTS OF CHURCHES 

It is impossible, in this Address, to give adequate recognition to all 
of the events since we last met, but I would like to call attention to 
some of the improvements in the physical condition of the following 
Churches that have been brought to my attention: The Parish Houses of 
Trinity Church, Lumberton, and of St. George's Church, Pikeville, have 
been fully completed and are serving, adequately, the needs of their 
Churches and the Community. Extensive work has been done this year 
on Calvary Church, Swan Quarter, and St. Timothy's Church, Farmville, 
and these Churches are now moving rapidly toward completion. The 
first Service to be held in St. Timothy's Church, Farmville, was held on 
Christmas Day, after windows for the Church were donated by St. 
Mary's Guild of St. James Church, Wilmington. New Parish Buildings 
and Church School Rooms have been constructed by Grace Church, White- 
ville, All Souls Church, North West, and Zion Church, Jessama. Galilee 
Mission, Lake Phelps, has almost completed a splendid, new Parish 
House, and it is significant to note that, although the materials and 
equipment are being given by outside Diocesan sources, the actual labor 
of construction is being done by the men of Galilee Mission, under the 
able supervision of our Mission Worker, Miss Lona Belle Wteatherly. 
Extensive improvements, or additions, have been made to the Church 
property of Holy Cross Church, Aurora, St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, 
Trinity Church, Chocowinity, St. Mark's Church, Grifton, Emmanuel 
Church, Farmville, St. Poul's Church, Clinton, Holy Innocents Church, 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 37 

1949 Bishop's Address 



Seven Springs, St. Matthew's Church, Yeatesville, St. Mark's Church, 
Roxobel, and St. Philip's Church, Tar Landing. Christ Church, New Bern, 
is in the midst of complete renovation, repair, and improvement which 
will involve, I understand, an expenditure of approximately $50,000.00. 

The progress that has been made in recent years by two Churches 
is worthy of note, I feel, by this Convention. Trinity Church, Lumberton, 
with a congregation of eighty-nine (89) members, showed an expendi- 
ture during the year that is covered by this Address of $32,056.58. The 
congregation, during the past three years, has increased 30%. This 
shows what can be done by a small group of people on fire with the 
message of Jesus Christ. St. Andrew's Church, Wrightsville, in two and 
one-half years, has increased their Communicant Strength 70%; they 
have spent $15,000.00 for the improvement of their Church; lowered 
the Church debt by one-third; and increased the portion of salary being 
paid to the Minister from $15.00 each month to $125.00 each month — 
thereby releasing funds which can now be used to promote new Mis- 
sionary Work in the Diocese. 

Finally, I would like to commend St. Mary's Church, Burgaw, a very 
small church, that in two years has increased its Communicant Strength 
by 25 % . 

, East Carolina is essentially a Diocese of small Churches. The work 
of the Bishop, this Convention, and the whole Diocese, must be centered, 
first of all, upon these small Churches — to make them grow and develop 
in every possible way. The hands of their Clergy must be held high. 
Nothing must ever be done, to in the least possible way impair their 
work, but to make them grow. — But let me make this plain, my dear 
Brethren. The standard of Laymen must be set higher. If our Church in 
East Carolina is to do its part in promoting Christ's Cause, we must try 
to bring more new Unchurched People into our midst.. We must help 
the Diocese more to release resources which can then be used in places 
even smaller than our own to begin new Churches and to strengthen the 
work of smaller ones. In the words of William Carey, that great Mis- 
sionary for God, our Churches must "attempt greater things for God and 
expect greater things from God." 

COMMITTEE ON DIOCESAN BOUNDARY LIINES 

Since the last Meeting of this Convention, and during the past year, 
one of the vital concerns of the Diocese has been the question of the 
readjustment of Diocesan Boundary Lines in the State of North Carolina. 
This Convention, last year, instructed a Committee to proceed with this 
matter, looking toward a more equal realignment of the Dioceses of the 
State. This Committee will report to the Convention this year, and so, 
it is not my intention to go into the subject in this Address. I would 
like to state to the Convention, however, that this Committee has worked 
most diligently and earnestly upon the matter, and I would like particul- 
arly to commend the Chairman, the Chancellor of our Diocese, Mr. 
Junius D. Grimes, for his unceasing efforts in this regard. I feel that 
the whole Diocese of East Carolina owes to Mr. Grimes and his associates 
a debt of real gratitude for the many, many days and weeks of hard 



38 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



1949 Bishop's Address 



work that have gone into the compiling of statistics, the preparation 
of briefs for Committee presentation, and the actual Meetings of the 
Committee. 

DIOCESAN SURVEY COMMITTEE 

At the last Meeting of this Convention, it was suggested that a 
Diocesan Survey be made dealing with the needs and opportunities of 
the Diocese — with long range views and objectives in mind. It was hoped 
that this could be made by the Home Department of the National Council. 
The National Council being unable to make this Survey for sometime 
to come, the Executive Council of the Diocese selected a Committee, upon 
the Bishop's nomination. Certain changes and additions to this Com- 
mittee have necessarily been made, and in view of the fact that 
certain members were asked to serve, the following Committee has been 
selected, and it is hoped that they will be willing to go forward with 
this most important work: Mr. Peter B. Ruff in of Wilmington, Chairman; 
Mr. Junius D. Grimes, of Washington; Mr. James Smith, of Goldsboro; 
the Rev. John W. Hardy, of Wilmington; the Rev. John Bonner, of Lum- 
berton; Mr. Alban K. Barrus, of Kinston; and Mr. Will G. Gaither, of 
Elizabeth City. The functions of this Committee are to be within the 
following prescribed areas, unless otherwise instructed by the Executive 
Council: 

(1) A rethinking of the grouping of Churches in the Missionary 
Fields of the Diocese. 

(2) Unification of Mission Fields through one joint Vestry, one 
Budget, and unified objectives. 

(3) A rethinking of the financial support of Missionary Clergy 
by the Diocese and the local Feld. 

(4) A concentration of the strength of the Church in certain grow- 
ing Communities of the Field. 

THE VIRGINIA SEMINARY CAMPAIGN 

One of the primary objectives of the Diocese for the past year has 
been the Virginia Seminary Campaign. At the last Meeting of this 
Convention, a goal was set for the Diocese of $15,000.00 The Chairman 
of this Campaign, Mr. Will G. Gaither, has worked indefatigably for 
this cause, and I wish, in this Address, to express my appreciation to 
him for his sacrificial and unceasing efforts to make the Campaign Fund 
a success. Mr. Gaither has always given fully of his time, his ability, 
and his great Christian character, to the Diocese of East Carolina. 

Although the Virginia Seminary Campaign started out with a 
rather limited objective, that of seeking to raise funds for the replace- 
ment of its physical equipment, the scope has now been greatly enlarged. 
The study conducted during the past year revealed to the Church its 
number one problem, that of Clergy shortage. The Virginia Seminary is 
trying, realistically, to meet the problem and to point the way forward 
to the rest of the Church. I touch upon this in my Convention Address 
because I, personally, have become thoroughly convinced that all of the 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 39 



Bishop's Address May 



Church's real problems and needs stem from this cause. I feel that it is 
essential for the Church, above all other things, to realistically meet this 
problem immediately. I believe that you will hear much about this in the 
immediate future, and I believe that our Delegates to the General Con- 
vention in San Francisco will have an opportunity to vote upon matters 
which will vitally affect the Church for many generations to come. 

The need in the Church today is for vital leadership — from our 
Clergy and from our Lay People. Two ideologies are competing in the 
world for mastery — "Russian Communism" and "the Faith of Jesus 
Christ." The "cold war" that is being waged, is essentially in the realm 
of Religion. Constant interpretation of these two conflicting Faiths 
is needed in the world today. The Master once said something about "the 
Sabbath being made for man and not man for the Sabbath". I am sure, 
also, from an interpretation of the Christian Faith, that He would say 
"The State is made for man, and not man for the State". That is (of 
course) the essential difference between Marxian Communism and Chris- 
tianity. 

And yet, although there is open hostility now between Christian be- 
lief and Marxian Communism, that, to my mind, is not the greatest danger 

facing the Christian Church. The greatest danger is not Hositility from 
without, but Indifference from within, the "insidious fifth column", seek- 
ing to destroy from within the Faith of Jesus Christ. 

The sure way for us, as Christians in East Carolina, to combat the 
ideology of Russian Communism is to make our Christian Faith strong. 
To arouse those who are indifferent — to have oiKr Laymen on fire for the 
Faith they believe in — to make our Churches "towers of Christian 
strength" in their Communities. God grant that all of us may sense the 
need of these urgent times — that we may keep before us in this Conven- 
tion our responsibility as followers of Jesus Christ in the midst of a 
needy world — That East Carolina may do its part in making "the King- 
doms of this World" the Kingdom of our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.

APPENDIX "B" 

C. McD. DAVIS' REPORT OF NATIONAL 
COUNCIL 

Because of conflict in dates of the annual meeting of stockholders 
of Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and the April meeting of the National 
Council of our Church, I was unable to attend the latter. 

That meeting, however, was, I am happy to say, only the second 
meeting of the Council I have had to miss since my membership beginning 
in the Fall of 1946. 

With the exception of a personal letter, which I received on yester- 
day, from a member of the Council, Bishop Mitchell of Arkansas, I have 
had no report of the activities of the Council at the April meeting other 
than as given in the May 8th issue of the Living Church. 

Bishop Mitchell's letter in referring to the meeting said, "It struck 
me as a rather routine and quiet sort of meeting considering all the 
important matters we dealth with." Bishop Mitchell undoubtedly had 
in mind the fact that the April meeting is the so-called "Budget Meeting", 
meaning, especially, that at the April meeting the budget to be presented 
to the General Convention in September was to be adopted. 

The Living Church article says the Council adopted a budget of 
$5,552,000 compared with $3,650,000 for 1949, or an increase of slightly 
more than $1,900,000. Involved is an increase in Missionary giving of 
$1,200,000. 

It is to be remembered that the National Council is required to 
submit a budget for the next triennium and that budget of $5,552,000 for 
1950 will be repeated in the two years following, namely, 1951 and 1952. 

For the first time the Presiding Bishop's fund for World Wide Relief 
in the amount of $500,000 was placed in the budget. 

As pointed out by the Presiding Bishop at the Council Meeting, the 
increase of $5,552,000 is not so large as it looks, because, including the 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 51 



1949 Report of National Council 



$1,400,000 for the World Relief raised in a single day — February 29, 
1048— the total for 1948 was more than $4,300,000. 

These increased givings on part of Episcopalians are truly a joy to 
me, as I know they are to all of us, and indicate that Episcopalians are 
learning the real pleasure of giving. Giving probably is not a natural 
instinct, but those who have cultivated the habit, if I may so term it, 
and most of u? have, find real joy in giving for the benefit of others 
less fortunately situated. 

I mention this budget figure of $5,552,000 as representing the 
budgets for 1950, 1951 and 1952 so that you may know that the budget 
proposed, certainly for the next three years, is stabilized at that figure. 

It is always a special pleasure to me to know that East Carolina 
consistently does its part in giving — in fact, does its part in all activities 
of the Church. We seldom, if ever, have to make excuses for East 
Carolina. 

The Treasurer of the National Council in report dated February 3, 
1949, stated that with the close of the year 1948 every Continental 
Diocese and District met its expectation in full. 

The Fourth Province, which includes East Carolina, not only went 
beyond its quota in 1948 but overpaid its expectation. This should be 
pleasing to all of us here because all had his or her part in the splendid 
work. 

In a letter dated May 3rd I received from Mr. Jordan, Director of 
One Great Hour, Mr. Jordan said, "The reports are coming in slowly, 
but it looks as though we will make our quota." That quota is $1,000,000 
and less than the $1,500,000 we raised for World Relief in a single day 
in 1948— February 29, 1948. 

I am serving in my third year as a member of the Council and have 
found the work highly interesting. It would hardly be possible to be 
associated with a finer group of Christian men and women than those 
who comprise the Council. There are more controversial questions at 
each meeting than, prior to my membership, I assumed would arise, but 
all questions are calmly debated, very careftilly considered, and disposed 
of, I believe, in the best interest of the Church as a whole. 

As you probably know, there are 32 members of the National Council, 
which membership includes the President of the Council, who is also the 
Presiding Bishop, the Vice-President, Bishop Bentley, the Treasurer, 
Mr. Dill, the Secretary, Dr. Barnes, 9 Bishops, 7 Clergymen, 8 Laymen 
and last, but not least, 4 ladies selected by the Woman's Auxiliary to 
represent the Auxiliary on the Council. 

At the time of the next General Convention about half of the present 
senior members of the Council will be replaced by new selections to be 
made at San Francisco — so those of us who remain will this Fall have 
new associates: For that reason, particularly, I am sorry to have 
missed the April meeting and, therefore, the opportunity of meeting 
with those whose term of service expires in September.

I feel that I have made a number of warm personal friends among 
members of the Council during my service with that body, and that those 
friendships will continue after our respective limited service on the 
Council has ended. 

When I was ma.de a member of the Council, I met for first time 
our very good friend, Bishop Donegan, not then a Bishop but Rector 
of one of the large Parishes in New York City, who, in the Fall of 1948, 
completed a fixed tour of duty as a member of the Council. It was in 
that Association that I came to regard him so highly as a man, a friend, 
and as a true servant of God. 

I was particularly • delighted when he was elected Bishop and I 
journeyed to New York City in November, 1947, to see him Consecrated 
in one of the outstanding Consecration Services of all time. 

One of the really outstanding pleasures in connection with my 
service as a member of the Council is that at each and every meeting, 
without exception, I am greeted with questions of friendly inquiry con- 
cerning the Diocesan growth of East Carolina and the physical health 
of our own Bishop Wright, who now guides the destinies of our Diocese. 

It delights me, too, to still hear fine references to our reloved late 
Bishop Darst and the late Dr. Milton, both of whom made such an 
indelible impression on members of the Council and the Council's work. 

Members of the Council never seem to tire of asking me about 
Bishop Wright and his work, and I never tire of giving the favorable 
report which is the reflection of his work among us. 

Also, believe it or not, every now and then someone asks about the 
Bishop's wife, who, with her lovely character and sweet personality, 
has won the hearts of all who know her and many who have just heard 
about her as an ideal Bishop's wife and an ideal mother. 



APPENDIX "D" 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE FROM DIOCESE OF 
EAST CAROLINA ON RE-ALIGNMENT OF 
DIOCESAN BOUNDARIES 

To: Rt. Rev. Thomas H. Wright, 
Bishop of Diocese of East Carolina 
Right Reverend Sir: 

At our 65th Annual Convention, which was held last May in St. 
Stephen's Church in Goldsboro, a resolution was unanimously passed ask- 
ing you to appoint a Committee of six male members consisting of three 
Clergymen and three laymen to meet with like committees from the 
other two Dioceses in North Carolina to consider the question as to 
whether a change in the territorial limits of the three Dioceses would 
promote the best interest of the Church in this State, and to consider 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 53 

1949 Report On Re-Alignment of Boundaries 

whether the best interest of the Church in the State would be best pro- 
moted by having two Dioceses or retaining three Dioceses and if three 
Dioceses be retained, as to the wisdom of changing the dividing line 
between them. 

The resolutions passed by this Diocese provided that ''Said commit- 
tees shall jointly discuss carefully all phases of this matter and acting as 
one committee shall make recommendations to the three Dioceses within 
thirty days after the adjournment of said Conference for such action 
as they think will best promote the interest of the Church in this State; 
said recommendations to be sent promptly to the Bishop of each of the 
three Dioceses to be considered by the Dioceses respectively at their 
next annnal convention." 

A resolution in the same language was passed by the Diocese of 
Western North Carolina at its convention on May 11, 1948, and a 
resolution of similar purport was passed by the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina on May 11, 1948, except that the Committees should severally make 
recommendations to their respective Dioceses for such action as they 
think will best promote the interest of the Church in this State. The 
Bishop of East Carolina appointed as his committee the Reverend 
Messrs. Stephen Gardner, R. C. Hauser, Jr., John W. Hardy and Messrs. 
Peter B. Ruffin, William G. Gaither and Junius D. Grimes. The Bishop 
of North Carolina appointed the Reverend Messrs, James M. Dick, 
Charles F. Herman, David W. Yates and Messrs. J. H. Cutter, J. A. 
Mackie and W. H. Ruffins. The Bishop of Western North Carolina ap- 
pointed the Reverend Messrs. Mark A. Jenkins, James B. Burke, C. G. 
Leavell and Messrs. William F. Balthis, S. W. Blanton and Kingsland 
Van Winkle. 

A joint meeting of the three Committees was scheduled to be held 
in Raleigh on January 27, 1949. 

In anticipation of this joint meeting, the Committee from East 
Carolina met in Washington, N. C, on January 12 in order to have a 
thorough discussion of the matter. Bishop Wright was present at this 
meeting as were all members of the Committee except the Reverend Mr. 
Hardy, who was in the process of moving his residence from Williamston 
to Wilmington. All phases of the matter were explored fully in order 
to arrive at a proper course of action for the Committee to pursue at the 
joint meeting in Raleigh. While there was no unanimous agreement on 
any single proposal, it was the consensus of the majority that we should 
advocate the continuance of three Dioceses in the State, with the addi- 
tion of certain counties to the Diocese of East Carolina and with a 
corresponding decrease in the size of the Diocese of North Carolina. 
The Reverend Mr. Hauser was the only committee member present who 
advocated the division of the State into two Dioceses. 

After a very thorough discussion of the matter, it was agreed that 
the Committee should go into the joint meeting open-minded and un- 
committed to any specific plan, although it was decided that the Com- 
mittee should propose that Wilson, Edgecombe, Nash, Halifax and 
Northampton Counties be transferred from the Diocese of North Carolina 



54 DIOCESE OP EAST CAROLINA 



Report On Re-Alignment of Boundaries May 



to the Diocese of East Carolina. Bishop Wright concurred in this, and 
the Chairman, Mr. Grimes, was requested to make the formal presen- 
tation of the East Carolina proposal and position, supported by all 
pertinent statistical data available. 

The joint meeting of the three Diocesan Committees was held as 
scheduled in Raleigh on January 27, 1949. All members of each Com- 
mittee were present, except Rev. James B. Burke, a clerical member 
from the Diocese of Western North Carolina, who was prevented from 
being present by recent injuries in an accident. Bishop Penick of the 
Diocese of North Carolina was also present. (Bishop Wright and Bishop 
Henry stated later that they did not understand that they were expected 
to attend.) The Reverend Mr. Dick of the Diocese of North Carolina 
was elecetd Chairman of the joint meeting, and the Reverend Mr. Hauser 
of the Diocese of East Carolina was elected Secretary. 

Mr. Grimes then presented the East Carolina position from a care- 
fully prepared statement, supported by a large amount of statistical 
data. He informed those present that the East Carolina Committee 
was open-minded, had come to no unanimous conclusion, but did pro- 
pose that the five counties of Wilson, Edgecombe, Nash, Halifax, and 
Northampton be transferred to the Diocese of East Carolina. Later in 
the meeting, other members of the East Carolina Committee spoke in 
support of this proposal and gave additional data and information not 
included in Mr. Grimes' remarks. 

Various members of the Committee from Western North Carolina 
then spoke and stated that no conclusions had been reached by their 
Committee as to just what should be done, but that their Diocese would 
be willing to accept the four counties of Mecklenburg, Iredell, Yadkin, 
and Surry, which are immediately east of the present boundary line of 
that Diocese. They supported generally the idea of continuing three 
Dioceses in the State, but with a re-alignment of the boundaries along 
the lines suggested. 

No positive expressions were made by members of the Committee 
from the Diocese of North Carolina, although several Committee Mem- 
bers asked questions about particular points made by members of both 
the other Committees. 

The Chairman then called on Bishop Penick for any observations 
he might wish to make. Bishop Penick pointed out that he had given 
careful thought to the matter for many years, and that it was not a 
new problem or proposal, but one which had been considered in prior 
years. He opposed the assumption that the division of the State into 
two Dioceses would be helpful to the work of the Church in the State 
as a whole, and stated further that he was perfectly willing to listen 
to proposals for readjustments which might be justified, but that he 
would have "to be shown" that any proposals were justified. Bishop 
Penick also submitted certain statistics showing the effect of the East 
Carolina proposal on the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Various Committee Members present then pointed out the desira- 
bility of having the three Bishops meet together to discuss the entire 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 55 



1949 Report On Re-Alignment of Boundaries 



matter for the benefit of the three Committees. Bishop Penick offered 
to call such a meeting of the Bishops, but stated that each Bishop could 
meet with his own Committee subsequently to discuss the matter 
rather than have a joint report of the three Bishops which would be 
improper and out of order. 

At the request of Mr. Grimes, the Chairman agreed to call another 
joint meeting to be held in Raleigh during the latter part of April. The 
meeting was then adjourned. 

The second joint meeting was held in Raleigh on April 29. All 
Committees were well represented, although pressing personal business 
was responsible for the absence of certain members. Bishop Penick and 
Bishop Wright were also present. The Reverend Mr. Dick again acted 
as Chairman, and the Reverend Mr. Hauser again acted as Secretary. 

Mr. Grimes spoke first and presented additional statistical data in 
support of the East Carolina proposal regarding the five counties. Other 
members of the East Carolina Committee also spoke in favor of the 
proposal, and urged that the matter be considered very carefully at this 
time. 

Bishop Penick then spoke on the subject of the meeting of the three 
Bishops which had been held in Raleigh on Easter Monday. He expressed 
a desire to make any move which would be for the best interest of the 
Church in North Carolina as a whole, but stated that he had not been 
convinced that any of the proposals which had been made were sound 
and should be carried out. Bishop Penick also stated that he had made 
inquiries throughout these five counties in the eastern section of 
North Carolina in order to determine what sentiment existed in favor 
of a change to East Carolina. He stated that he had found no evidence 
of a desire to change on the part of the various people with whom he 
had discussed the matter. He also stated that he had not received 
a single formal request from any Parish or Vestry to have the transfer 
effected. He offered to continue to consider this matter as circum- 
stances dictated. 

Bishop Wright then gave his views and gave forceful reasons in 
support of transferring the five counties to the Diocese of East Carolina. 
Specifically, he pointed out that a few Parishes in East Carolina, pro- 
vide the support of the majority of Parishes in the Diocese, and that 
the addition of the five counties would add several strong Parishes 
to East Carolina, thereby making a. much strong Diocese. He also ex- 
pressed the hope that the entire matter would be considered from the 
point of view of the Church in the State as a whole in the hope of 
strengtening the weak Dioceses without materially hurting the Diocese 
of North Carolina, the strongest of the three. 

Bishop Henry of the Diocese of Western North Carolina not being 
present, was unable to express himself. The Chairman of the Com- 
mittee, the Reverend Mr. Leavell, presented a formal proposal, however, 
calling for the transfer of Mecklenburg, Iredell, Yadkin, and Surry 
Counties from the Diocese of North Carolina to the Diocese of Western 
North Carolina. He supported his proposal with statistics showing the 



56 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report On Re-Alignment of Boundaries May 

net effect on all three Dioceses if both transfers were made. In closing, 
he stated that regardless of the outcome of these deliberations, his dele- 
gation would continue its work for the good of the Church as a whole. 

There followed considerable discussion as to procedure, after which 
it was agreed that the report of each Committee to its own Convention 
would be sent to the Bishops of the other two Dioceses in accordance 
with the original resolutions creating the Committees. No joint resolu- 
tions were permitted due to the resolution of the Diocese of North 
Carolina which specifically provided that its Committee should report 
back to its Convention alone. It was the consensus of those present that 
any further consideration of the matter would depend on action of the 
three Diocesan Conventions to be held shortly. 

There being no further business, the joint meeting was declared 
adjourned. 

As was the case in the previous joint meeting, the meetings were 
held in the Parish House of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, 
and those present were luncheon guests of the Diocese of North Carolina. 

In connection with this matter, we compiled some statistics showing 
comparative strength of the three Dioceses. These statistics are set forth 
on the three attached sheets, which we ask to be considered as a part 
of this report. 

However, we think it proper to set out here a few of these which 
we deemed very important in considering this matter.

We have asked the Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina to cede 
to us the Counties of Edgecombe, Halifax, Nash, Northampton, and 
Wilson. 

These five counties have an aggregate population (as of 1940.) of 
239,800 persons — approximately 12V2% of Diocese of North Carolina, 
and 2,433 Communicants (or 15% out of a total of 15,889. 

The percentage of the pledge for Episcopal Maintenance Fund and 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 57

the Church's program fund that come from these five counties is only 
about 14% of the whole. 

If our request were granted and these five counties ceded to East 
Carolina, then Diocese of North Carolina would still have a population 
of 1,654,425 as against 1,105,166 in East Carolina and a Communicant 
strength of 13,456 as against 11,363 in East Carolina, and Pledge for 
Episcopal Maintenance and Church's program fund of $97,647 in North 
Carolina as against $59,350 in East Carolina. 

We feel that these figures fully justified our request, and that the 
cession of these counties to East Carolina would not impair the effective- 
ness of the Church Work in Diocese of North Carolina and would ma- 
terially strengthen East Carolina. 

We fully recognized that no additional territory could be given our 
Diocese without the approval of the Bishop and Diocesan Convention 
of North Carolina, and that until such approval was given, it would be 
improper for us to ask the Parishes in these Counties to join us, hence 
no effort was made in that direction. 

It is the feeling of the East Carolina Committee that while no 
formal proposals have been adopted and no positive action has been 
taken in regard to the general question of re-alignment of Diocesan 
Boundaries, much has been accomplished by the three Committees that 
have made a study of this important matter. It is felt that interest 
throughout the three Dioceses has been stimulated by the active con- 
sideration that has been given to this problem. It is also felt that there 
is a clearer understanding of the whole question by the representatives 
of the three Dioceses and others in the State who are concerned with the 
subject. 

We in East Carolina are very hopeful that the ground work that has 
been done during the past year will lead to further active consideration 
during the coming year and that out of our past and future delibera- 
tions will come some move which will serve to strengthen the Dioceses 
of East Carolina and Western North Carolina without reducing the 
effectiveness and potency of the Diocese of North Carolina. 

To this end, we recommend that the East Carolina Commitee remain 
in existence as presently organized and cooperate fully with Bishop 
Wright and with the two other Dioceses in North Carolina in any 
future consideration of this matter which may be authorized and which 
may be considered appropriate.

MINUTES OF THE JOINT MEETING OF THE COMMITTEES ON 

REALIGNMENT OF DIOCESAN BOUNDARIES 

IN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

At the invitation of the Rev. James M. Dick, rector of the host 
parish, and Chairman of the N. C. Committee on Realignment, the 
committees from the three dioceses in the State, met at the Church of 
the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, on January 27, 1949. 

The meeting was called to order by the host rector, and was opened 
with prayer by the Rev. Stephen Gardner, (EC). 

The Rev. Mr. Dick proceeded with the roll call, and in addition to 
Bishop Penick of North Carolina, the three Dioceses of the State were 
represented by the following committees: 

N. C. 

The Rev. James M. Dick* Mr. J. H. Cutter 

The Rev. Carl Herman Mr. J. A. Mackie 

The Rev. David Yates Mr. Cleveland Thayer 

W. N. C. 

The Rev. Mark A. Jenkins* Mr. W. L. Balthis 

The Rev. C. G. Leavell Mr. S. W. Blanton 

Mr. Kingsland Van Winckle 
(The Rev. J. P. Burke, third Clerical member of the WNC Commit- 
tee was absent, due to injuries from a recent accident). 

E. C. 

The Rev. Stephen Gardner Mr. J. D. Grimes* 

The Rev. John W. Hardy Mr. P. B. Ruffin 

The Rev. R. C. Hauser, Jr. Mr. W. G. Gaither 
* Denotes Chairman 

After some discussion as to procedure, it was agreed that a Chair- 
man and a Secretary for this joint-meeting should be elected. The 
Rev. J. M. Dick (NC) was elected Chairman, and the Rev. R. C. Hauser, 
Jr. (EC) was elected Secretary. 

The Chairman opened the meeting by reading the resolution adopted 
by the Diocese of North Carolina at its last annual Convention, and 
interpreted this to mean that this joint-meeting was assembled for the 
purpose of discussion only, with the Committee from NC unable to 
agree to or to adopt any resolutions or proposals made at this joint 
meeting. The NC Commitee was in agreement on this interpretation, so 
the Chairman extended an invitation to the spokesmen from the other 
Dioceses to open the discussion. 

Mr. Grimes (EC) spoke first from a thoughtfully prepared manu- 
script, and he reviewed and summed up the following points in his 
presentation: 

1. The background of the establishing of present Diocesan lines. 

2. Presented present-day statistics and a map for comparison. 

3. Mentioned that EC Committee was not unanimous on any single 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 59 



1949 Minutes of Diocesan Boundaries Meeting 



proposal, but had come to this meeting open-minded. 
4. Proposed that 5 counties, now a part of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina, be included in East Carolina, to permit Diocesan line to follow, 
roughly, the ACLER line. These counties are Wilson, Edgecombe, 
Nash, Halifax, and Northampton. 
General discussion followed Mr. Grimes' proposal. 

The Rev. Mark Jenkins (WNC) spoke for the Committee from his 
Diocese. He reported that the WNC Committee had had a prior meet- 
ing but no conclusions had been reached, and they were attending this 
joint-meeting with open minds. 

The Rev. C. G. Leavell (WNC) added to Mr. Jenkins' report that 
his Diocese would be willing to accept the 4 adjacent counties to WNC 
on the east and running north and south. These counties would be 
Mecklenburg, Iredell, Yadkin, and Surry. 

Mr. Van Winckle (WNC) added the voice of the Laymen to this 
proposal and expressed the opinion that the annexation of the 4 counties 
mentioned would meet with the approval of Bishop Henry (WNC) 

Mr Ruff in (EC) was the next speaker, and he confined his remarks 
to the 5 counties mentioned in Mr. Grimes' proposal. Mr. Ruffin spoke 
of the cultural, economic, political, and family ties of the people in these 
counties with the people in the Diocese of East Carolina. 

The Rev. David Yates (NC) brought up the financial aspects of the 
5 counties suggested by the East Carolina Committee proposal. Much 
discussion followed this. 

The Rev. Mr. Leavell (WNC) felt that his Diocese would be bene- 
fitted greatly along financial lines by the addition of Mecklenburg 
County, but realized that some financial liability would be involved 
in the other three counties. 

By request of the Chairman, the Rev. R. C. Hauser, Jr. (EC) spoke 
in favor of the State being divided into two Dioceses. 

At this point, the Chairman called on Bishop Penick (NC) for any 
observations or remarks he cared to make, from the discussions he had 
heard at this meeting. 

Bishop Penick (NC) spoke of having given much thought to this 
whole problem for many years and reminded all present that it wasn't 
a new problem by any means. In his remarks the Bishop: 

1. Opposed the assumption that two Dioceses in the State would help 
the work of the Church. It was his opinion that such a division, 
with a Bishop and a Coadjutor in each Diocese, would result in "four" 
divisions in practice, with each Bishop having his own loyal personal 
followng. 

2. He said that he would be willing to listen to readjustments which 
might be justified. 

3. He read from written notes some vital statistics on the 5 counties 



60 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Minutes of Diocesan. Boundaries Meeting May 

involved in the East Carolina proposal. He said that a transfer 
of these counties would mean a loss to the Diocese of NC of: 

11 Clergymen; 27 Parishes and Missions; 2,600 Communicants, 
(approximately); $764,000 in Church property evaluations; $3,000 
for support of the Episcopate; $22,000 for support of the Mis- 
sionary and General Church Budget. The only financial lia- 
bility in this area amounted to $7,800 for the support of Mis- 
sions. 

4. He concluded his remarks by stating that he was still willing "to 
be shown". 

Mr. Ruff in (EC) suggested that the three Bishops of the State meet 
and discuss this whole matter and furnish the three Diocesan Commit- 
tees with their opinions. 

The Rev. Mr. Hauser (EC) made the motion that the Chairman of 
this joint-meeting, the Rev. Mr. Dick (NC), extend the invitation to the 
three Bishops for this meeting. 

The Rev. Mr. Leavell (WNC) seconded this motion. 

Mr. Ruff in (EC) offered a formal substitute to this motion, with 
the same objective in view, but with the provision that the senior Bishop 
of the State extend the invitation to the other Bishops. 

Mr. Balthis (WNC) seconded the substitute. 

Much discussion followed this motion, primarily on the legality of 
a motion or a resolution adopted by this joint-meeting. 

Bishop Penick (NC) was recognized by the Chairman, and he volun- 
teered to contact and invite Bishops Wright (EC) and Henry (WC) 
for a discussion of this whole matter. It was suggested that each 
Bishop meet with his own Diocesan Committee after meeting together. 

The previous motion and substitute motion were withdrawn. 

After more discussion involving a future joint-meeting of the three 
Diocesan Committees, the Chairman ruled that upon request of the 
Chairman of any one of the Diocesan Committees on Realignment, he 
would call a joint-meeting. 

Mr. Grimes (EC) immediately made such a request and the latter 
part of April, 1949, was suggested. 

Mr. Van Winckle (WNC) made a motion to adjourn. There being 
no legal objections to the motion, it as adopted. 

The Benediction was pronounced to close the meeting. 

Respectfullfy submitted,

MINUTES OF THE SECOND JOINT-MEETING OF COMMITTEES 

ON REALIGNMENT OF DIOCESAN BOUNDARIES 

IN TH STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The second joint-meeting of the three committees convened at 11:30 
a.m., April' 29, 1949, in the Parish House of the Church of the Good 
Shepherd, Raleigh, with the following Bishops and committee members 
present: 

Bishop Penick (N.C.) and Bishop Wright (E.C.) 

N. C. 

The Rev. James McD. Dick, Chr. Mr. J. A. Mackie 

The Rev. David Yates Mr. Cleveland Thayer 

The Rev. Carl Herman

E. C. 

The Rev. Stephen Gardner Mr. J. D. Grimes, Chr. 

The Rev. John Hardy Mr. P. B. Ruffin 

The Rev. R. C. Hauser, Jr. 

The Rev. Mr. Dick (NC), chairman of the joint-meeting called the 
group to order, and after the invocation by Bishop Wright (EC), the 
roll call was made by the secretary, the Rev. Mr. Hauser (EC). The 
reading of the minutes of the last meeting was next in the order of 
business. The minutes were accepted without change. 

The Chairman called on Mir. Grimes (EC) to open the discussion. 
Mr. Grimes spoke on the East Carolina proposal, which had been pre- 
sented in the former meeting, involving the transfer of five counties 
(Wilson, Edgecombe, Nash, Halifax, and Northampton) from the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina to East Carolina. The speaker also presented 
comparative statistics, involving the transfer of the five counties. 

Some discussion followed this proposal, with the Rev. Mr. Dick 
(NC), the Rev. David Yates (NC), and Mr. Grimes (EC) taking part. 

Mr. Ruffin (EC) spoke in favor of the East Carolina proposal. He 
also requested a report from the two Bishops present on the meeting 
of the three Bishops of the State on this matter, which meeting had 
been held at the invitation of Bishop Penick (NC), on April 17, 1949, 
in Raleigh. 

Bishop Penick (NC), in reporting on the meeting of the three 
Bishops said that this was the first time this matter had been the 
subject of discussion "in the open" with the three Bishops of the state 
present. He further stated that the three Bishops had agreed that 
no joint-recommendations would be made to this joint-meeting, but that 
each had been free to make recommendations to their respective Dio- 
cesan committee. 



62 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Minutes of Second Joint Meeting May 

Bishop Penick (NC) then spoke on some matters involved in the 
East Carolina proposal. He made the following points: 

1. The point of difference which could be drawn in interpreting the 
statistics which had been presented. 

2. The geographical relationship between the proposed territory and 
the Diocesan headquarters of North Carolina and East Carolina. 

3. Cited comparisons of a number of other Diocesan boundaries through- 
out the United States. 

4. Has discovered very little sentiment or interest in favor of this 
proposal, even within the territory involved in the proposal. 

5. Has received no official request from any of the parishes or mis- 
sions in the area involved. 

After Bishop Penick had spoken, the Chairman called on Bishop 
Wright (EC), for any remarks he cared to make. Bishop Wright was 
in full agreement with Bishop Penick (NC) involving the meeting of the 
three Bishops of the state. 

Bishop Wright (EC) then spoke of the sentiment for a change in 
the boundaries, which he had discovered in his own Diocese, and for 
the need of making this change more for the future than for the present. 
His reasons were: 

1. If line had been created unwisely, originally, there is no sacred 
reason why it cannot be changed today. For the past several 
decades, the population movement in North Carolina has been from 
the eastern part of the state toward the industrial parts of North 
Carolina. East Carolina has actually been a "feeder" of com- 
municant strength to the other Dioceses of the state. 

2. The like-mindedness of the people in the five counties involved in 
the East Carolina proposal, and the people of the Diocese of East 
Carolina. He mentioned that the people of these respective areas 
"did everything together, except have their Church life with each 
other." 

3. Need for a few towns and cities of better size in East Carolina, not 
only from the financial assistance angle, but also from the Church 
leadership and strength angles. He suggested that the future 
was much more important in this respect than the present. He 
pointed out that the only towns showing any appreciable growth 
in population within the Diocese of East Carolina, were the towns 

in the western and central area of the Diocese, i.e., Fayetteville, 
Goldsboro, Kinston, and Greenville; others are static in size or be- 
coming smaller. The towns just across the present Diocesan boun- 
dary are also growing. He answered Bishop Penick's point on the 
geographical relationship between present Diocesan headquarters 
and the five counties in the proposal, by stating that "Diocesan 
headquarters of East Carolina may have to be moved someday, 
whether the transfer of the five counties take place or not". 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 63 



1949 Minutes of Second Joint Meeting 



Some discussion followed Bishop Wright's remarks, with the Bishop, 
the Rev. Mr. Dick (NC), and the Rev. Mr .Yates (NC) taking part. The 
main point brought out in this discussion involved the matter of Episcopal 
supervision, if the proposed area were incorporated in the Diocese of 
East Carolina. Bishop Wright (EC) explained the nature of much of 
the territory now served by him. 

The Chairman called on the WNC chairman, the Rev. Mark Jenkins 
for any proposals or remarks he cared to present to the joint meeting. 
The Rev. Mr. Jenkins (WNC) called on the Rev. C, G. Leavell (WNC) 
to present the report for their committee. 

The Rev. Mr. Leavell (WNC) presented a mimeograph proposal, 
with a copy available for each member of the three committees. This 
proposal involved the four adjacent counties to the present boundary 
line between North Carolina and Western North Carolina, i.e., Meck- 
lenburg, Iredell, Yadkin, and Surry. The speaker drew certain con- 
clusions from the statistics he had incorporated in his report. 

The Rev. Mr. Dick (NC) then called on other members of the three 
committees for any observations or remarks they would care to make. 
A free discussion on the various problems followed, with the following 
committee members taking part: Mr. Balthis (WNC), Mr. Ruff in (EC), 
the Rev. Roscoe Hauser, (EC), the Rev. Carl Herman (NC), Mr. Cleve- 
land Thayer (NC), and the Rev. Mark Jenkins (WNC). 

The meeting temporarily adjourned for lunch, which was provided 
by the Diocese of North Carolina, and served by the ladies of the Church 
of the Good Shepherd, in the parish house 

The meeting continued around the luncheon table, and became more 
of an informal discussion on numerous points of mutual interest. The 
Rev Mr Herman and Mr Thayer (NC) had conducted a "poll" among 
the Clergy and Laymen of the area involved in the East Carolina pro- 
posal, and had discovered no appreciable sentiment in favor of the 
change 

By nature of the resolution adopted at the last Diocesan Convention 
of the Diocese of North Carolina, this joint-meeting was powerless 
to make a joint report of the two meetings held. It was decided that 
each Diocesan committee would make its respective report to its own 
Diocesan Convention. There was much discussion on this point 

It was also felt that further joint-meetings and continued study 
on this matter would have to be determined by action of the respective 
Diocesan Conventions. 

The meeting adjourned around 3 p.m.

furnish the three Bishops of the state, the report they were to make to 
their respective Conventions. The resolutions adopted in EC and WNC 
also contained this same provision, (s) R.C.H. 

Although the claims of the Diocese of Western North Carolina for 
cession of territory from the Diocese of North Carolina may not in the 
historical sense be as real as those of East Carolina, they nevertheless 
are quite as sound from the practical point of view. It is manifest that 
W.N.C. is the weakest of the three Dioceses within the State of N.C. It 
was founded as a missionary district in 1895 and composed largely of that 
portion of the State not wanted by its Mother Diocese. For some time 
it was a missionary field of the General Church. It still has within its 
borders perhaps the greatest missionary challenge and opportunity of 
any section within the State. It became a Diocese in 1922, but has never 
been strong enough to meet its obligations adequately. Although it 
recently has come to the status of self-support, it has done so under strict 
limitations such as we believe do not exist within the other two Dioceses 
of the State. 

We do not think it presumption on our part to ask our Mother 
Diocese to give us aid which she is able now to give. We want her to 
be proud of her child, and to give her the opportunity to go forward 
beside her and grow on equal terms. We therefore respectfully request 
that necessary steps be taken for a vote as to cession of the counties 
of Mecklenburg, Iredell, Yadkin, and Surry. This would obviously give 
W. N. C. (the weakest Diocese, we again remind you) the largest City 
in the State along with three contiguous counties similar to much of 
W. N. C. We offer through this proposal, coupled perhaps with the 
possible cession of eastern counties asked for by East Carolina, a plan 
to give us three strong Dioceses within our State and also ample Episcopal 
supervision without the necessity for a coadjutor in any of the three. 
We believe contacts between the counties we ask for and our present 
Dioceses would be mutually beneficial, cordial, and natural. 

The cession for which we ask would mean addition to W.N.C, and 
consequent loss to N.C. of 2,824 communicants, 8 clergy, 14 parishes and 
missions, $16,308.32 in missionary giving, $3,180.11 in support of the 
Episcopate, and total receipts of $141,677.83. For the moment assuming 
this cession and also the cession asked for by East Carolina, comparative 
statistics of the three Dioceses would be: 

N.C. E.C. W.N.C. 

Communicants 10,465 11/530 7,653 

Clergy 51 53 40 

Receipts Church's Program $ 41,744.66 $ 99,695.78* $ 27,522.56

Total Receipts $595,491.92** $335,733.21** $370,565.54 

'"Includes $5,954.93 Reconstruction and Advance Fund in E. C. 
Journal, around $12,000.00 Episcopal maintenance carried under a lump- 
ing of receipts, other items such as $3,500.00 Good Shepherd Hospital. 
Does not include shift of receipts from N.C. to E.C. in proposed 
territory to be ceded E.C; suggest this be done by somebody knowing

this territory better! The only financial missionary "liability" we find in 
the four counties we ask for is $638.06 to Rector of Trinity, Statesville, 
for work at St. James', Iredell County. 

Whatever the outcome of these conversations may be, it is the in- 
tention of our delegation to go home and work harder for the advance- 
ment of Christ's Kingdom within that portion of His vineyard com- 
mitted to us. We honestly believe the work of the Church would be 
furthered and benefitted by the cession we propose not only in W.N.C. 
but also in the entire three Dioceses. In any event we are ready to work 
with whatever we have, believing it is God-given. We believe that by 
God's grace the Church is going forward throughout North Carolina as 
a whole, and more especially the Western portion wherein it is our 
privilege to labor.

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE OF THE DIOCESE OF 
NORTH CAROLINA ON THE STUDY OF DIOCESAN BOUNDARIES 

To the Bishop and Members of the Convention: 

The Special Committee appointed by the Bishop, acting in accord- 
ance with the 1948 Diocesan Convention, to meet with similar Commit- 
tees of the other two Dioceses in this State to "jointly discuss carefully 
all phases" of the matter of possible changes in existing Diocesan Boun- 
daries, wishes to report that during the past year, two Meetings were 
held jointly with the Committees of East Carolina and Western North 
Carolina. In addition, three Meetings of our own Committee were held. 
Numerous of the Clergy and Laity of the border Counties of this Diocese 
were consulted and invited to give their views and opinions pertaining 
to the subject under study. 

Inasmuch as our study has not revealed evidence indicating the 
necessity or advisability of changing Diocesan Boundaries in this State, 
and in view of the decisions of this Diocese to elect a Bishop Co-Adjutor 
at this Convention, thus giving the largest of the three North Carolina 
Dioceses (where the population of the State is concentrated) greatly 
increased Episcopal leadership and supervision, your Committee recom- 
mends that the existing Boundary Lines between the three Dioceses 
in the State of North Carolina remain unchanged. We believe that it 
will be for the best interests of the Church as a whole in this State 
to have the Church concentrate her greatest Missionary effort in that 
part of the State where the population is concentrated and where the

needs and opportunities for the Church appear to be the greatest.

APPENDIX "E" 
AUDIT REPORT— MARCH 31, 1949 

The Board of Trustees, 
Diocese of East Carolina, 
Wilmington, North Carolina 

Gentlemen : 

We have examined the accounts and records of various Trust Funds, 
as maintained by your Treasurer, Mr. Robert Strange, for the year 
ended December 31, 1948, and submit herewith the results of such ex- 
amination on the following Exhibits: 
Recapitulation of Fund Balances 

Income Exhibit "A" 

Principal Exhibit "A" 

Receipts and Disbursements 

All Funds Exhibit "B" 

Our examination embraced tracing of receipts, as shown by the 
books and records, to the depository. All disbursements were made from 
the depository, the Wilmington Savings and Trust Company, Wilmington, 
North Carolina, and supported by cancelled vouchers. Distribution of 
funds to beneficiaries of the particular funds were accepted as correct. 
Funds on deposit with the depository were reconciled with the records of 
the depository as of December 31, 1948. Securities, held for safe keeping 
in a safe deposit box at The Bank of Wilmington, Wilmington, North 
Carolina were inspected by us on March 29, 1949. Real Estate, owned by 
the Trustees, was accepted as correct and deeds were not inspected. 
Your attention is called to the comments pertaining to real estate in the 
audit report for the year ended March 31, 1946 and to the land sale to 
Emeline Northcutt during the year ended March 31, 1947. During the 
period under review $50.00 was collected from Emeline Northcutt and this 
collection was again handled as a down payment on real estate sale — 
see the Rev. Edward M. Forbes Estate. Income from the property of the 
Estate of Ellen E. Jackson is shown on Exhibit "B". The Assets of this 
Estate have not been set up since same have not been determined. 
Exhibit "B" shows receipt of a gift from Carolyn W. Hughes. We were 
advised that the disposition of this gift had not been designated at the 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 71 



1949 Audit Report 



time of our audit. 

We have shown certain transfers within funds, particularly, with the 
Miscellaneous and Joint Bond Accounts, as memoranda under receipts 
and disbursements of the respective funds and as actual receipts and 
disbursements in the above named accounts. 

CERTIFICATE 

In our opinion, based upon such examination, and subject to the 
foregoing comments, the accompanying Exhibits fairly present the con- 
dition of the funds held by the Board of Trustees at December 31, 1948. 

Respectfully submitted,

APPENDIX "G" 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CHURCH 

PENSION FUND TO HE 66TH ANNUAL 

CONVENTION OF THE DIOCESE OF 

EAST CAROLINA, FAYETTE- 

VILLE, N. C. 

The duties of this Committee as defined in Canon are, briefly, as 
follows : 

(a) To be informed, and to inform the clergy and laity of this Diocese 
of the pension system of our Church in order that the ordained clergy 
may be assured of pension protection for themselves in the event of old 
age, or total and permanent disability, and for their widows and minor 
orphan children in the event of death. 

(b) To receive reports from The Church Pension Fund from time 
to time on the status of pension assessments payable to said Fund. 

(c) To make an annual report to this Convention on such matters 
relating to the Fund as may be of interest to this Convention. 

(d) To cooperate with The Church Pension Fund in doing all things 
necessary or advisable to the end that the clergy of this Diocese may 
be assured of the fullest pension protection under the established rules 
of the Fund. 

There is submitted as a part of this report, a letter from Mr. Robert 
Worthington, Executive Vice-President of The Church Pension Fund, 
dated April 4, 1949, relative to the general situation with respect to 
the Fund and with it he has furnished a list of pensions now being 
paid to beneficiaries of the Fund in this Diocese. 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 101 



1949 Report On Church Pension Fund 



The question of services by beneficiaries of the Fund has been 
carefully considered by the Trustees of the Fund and the following state- 
ment has recently been released by the Rt. Rev. Cameron J. Davis, 
President of the Church Pension Fund: 

STATEMENT OF THE TRUSTEES ON THE QUESTION OF 
SERVICES BY BENEFICIARIES 

"The Church Pension Fund is frequently, and quite naturally, asked 
what policy is followed in regard to services by beneficiaries. 

"The policy is based on the facts that those who framed the system 
and the Church in adopting it clearly had in mind that its benefits would 
be paid to retired clergy (and widows and children), that the contribu- 
tions to the Initial Reserve and the assessment contributions of parishes 
and other units have been made for the purpose, and moreover that 
it is in the best interests of the Church and clergy pensions that the 
benefits shall continue to be so paid. 

"The Trustees have no power to say what services the clergy may 
conduct. But they do have the responsibility of disbursing pensions 
only to those who are retired. 

"Incidental supply services here and there for a few Sundays at 
a time are considered by the Trustees not to be a return to the active 
ministry. Services of more than a month or so at any one place in 
any twelve months are prima facie a return to active status and the 
pension is suspended after the first month. Suspending a pension is 
without prejudice of any sort to the clergyman and the pension is re- 
instated at termination of work, often at a slightly higher figure because 
of additional assessments paid. 

"The Trustees believe the following to be the position which is in 
the best interests of the clergy and the Church: 

"(1) The active clergy shall be compensated directly by the Con- 
gregations they serve, aided if necessary from missionary 
funds, and the retired clergy shall be provided with income 
by contributions which the Church and its units route through 
The Church Pension Fund. 

"(2) The Church Pension Fund shall not make payments to clergy 
who are not retired. The result of making such payments 
could be that the congregations and dioceses and missionary 
organizations would be relieved to that extent of providing 
an adequate living for those serving them. This is not and 
should not be a function of what the Church earmarks for 
those who are retired. 

"(3) Furthermore, any disbursements made by The Church Pension 
Fund to those who are not retired would mean that much less 
can be disbursed to those who are in fact retired, in the form 
of increases over the guaranteed pensions. 

"(4) Pensions by their very nature are not large. The cost of fully 



102 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report On Church Pension Fund May 



adequate pensions would be too great for the Church to stand. 
There will always be pensions which fall short of sufficiency. 
But any attempt to eke out pensions of those who are able 
physically to serve and are convenient to vacant churches 
would be at the expense of those not so able or convenient. 

"(5) There always have been and doubtless always will be small 
congregations which cannot provide or find it difficult to pro- 
vide a living stipend. These are an administrative responsi- 
bility of the dioceses and missionary organizatons and not a 
responsibility of resources earmarked for pensions for the 
retired. 

"(6) The present shortage of clergy is distressing. Nevertheless 
retired clergy returning to active work at vacant places are 
entitled to compensation for it from the places, helped out 
by missionary funds if necessary, as if there were no shortage, 
and not from funds for retirement pensions. 

"(7) The need is for higher stipends for the active clergy and 
higher pensions to the retired. Mixing stipends and pensions 
would lead to lower stipends for the active and lower pensions 
for the retired. 

In behalf of the Board of Trustees 

(Signed) CAMERON J. DAVIS, 
President" 

It might be of interest to outline briefly the beginning of our 
Church Pension Fund. Prior to March 1, 1917, or only a little more 
than 30 years ago, when an aged clergyman retired from active service 
without private means, he automatically became an applicant for charit- 
able aid — in reality, a beggar. He had to ask a charitable society sup- 
ported by contributions in the churches to give him help and he usually 
received a promise of from $50 to $400 a pear — no more. The widows 
of clergymen were treated in the same way, except that they received 
less. The Church papers of that time carried pathetic appeals in behalf 
of those societies; the stories of the poverty of whose who had given 
their lives in the service of the Church were often heartrending. Minis- 
ters in the prime of life, with wives and children, felt a chill as they 
looked ahead to old age and their courage deserted them. The dignity 
and efficiency of the clergy were seriously impaired. As a result, old 
and decrepit men were filling the pulpits and holding on tight because 
they could not afford to resign and fall into abject poverty, while young 
men were held back from promotion and from entering fields of larger 
service. There was a total lack of that certainty of some support in old 
age; some income for his widow in case of his death, that always gives 
hope, strength and enthusiasm to a man in the stress of active work. 

The General Convention of 1910 appointed a Commission to study 
the subject and from that study there emerged March 1, 1917, our 
present pension plan. Time does not permit us to do more than touch 
on the high spots of this important subject, but we think it essential 
that there be included in this report pertinent information as to the 
practical aspects of our Church's Pension plan. 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 103 



1949 Report On Church Pension Fund 



The basic idea of the plan is the payment of assessments during 
the active ministry of a clergyman so as to provide a fair annuity when 
he reaches the age of retirement — 68, or is compelled to retire account 
of total and permanent disability. These assessments are to be paid by 
the parishes and missions and are generally based on 10% of the salary 
of the rector plus one-sixth of his salary where a rectory is provided. 
They may not be regarded as payable by the Rector out of his salary 
and the assessment should be remitted by the parish or mission treasurer 
direct to The Church Pension Fund, 20 Exchange Place, New York, N. Y., 
in accordance with the bi-monthly notice sent out by the New York office. 
Where a clergyman is furnished with both board and lodging by the 
parish or mission, the cash salary is regarded as being increased by 40 % 
for assessment purposes unless a specific figure is available. Where the 
rent of rectory is paid by the parish or mission or where the rector is 
paid an allowance to cover same, the actual amount of such rent or 
allowance is used in lieu of one-sixth of his salary. 

According to the latest available information there are: 

Fourteen parishes and missions whose pension assessments are in 
arrears more than one month since January 1, 1949, representing a total 
of $139.22 plus accrued interest —$1.48— $140.70: 

St. Thomas' Atkinson St. Augustine's Kinston 

St. Jude's Aurora St. Cyprian's New Bern 

St. James' Ayden St. Ann's Roper 

St. Thomas' Bath St. Luke's Roper 

St. John's Bonnerton St. John's Sladesville 

St. David's Creswell St. Peter's Sunbury 

St. Martin's Hamilton St. Matthew's Yeatesville 

Four parishes and missions whose pension assessments are in ar- 
rears for the year 1948, representing a total of $40.41 plus accrued in- 
terest $1.55— $41.76: 

St. James' Ayden St. Thomas' Sladesville 

St. Mary's Belhaven St. Paul's Washington 

Sixteen parishes and missions whose pension assessments are in 
arrears prior to 1948, representing a total of $872.68 plus accrued in- 
terest $1,216.79— $2,089.47: 

St. John's Edenton All Saints' Fairfield 

St. John's Sladesville St. Paul's Beaufort 

Holy Innocents' Sevpen Springs St. Andrew's Morehead City 

St. James' Ayden Calvary Swan Quarter 

St. John's Grifton St. Matthew's Yeatesville 

St. Thomas' Bath St. Paul's . Greenville 

St. Paul's Clinton St. Andrew's _■ Columbia 

Calvary Warsaw St. David's Creswell 

Some of these date back to 1920 and several of them are for sub- 
stantial amounts, particularly as to the interest, which is on basis of 5%, 
compounded annually. 



104 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report On Chu'rch Pension Fund May- 



It seems probable that the effect of unpaid assessments may not 
be fully understood by those parishes and missions that have permitted 
their pension assessments to go unpaid. An incomplete assessment 
schedule results in a reduced pension. The formula used in arriving at 
the Age Allowance is 1 1-4% of the average annual salary received 
since ordination multiplied by the number of years from ordination 
with a maximum of one-half the average annual salary. The method 
of calculating the pension is to first calculate what the pension would 
have been if all assessments had been fully paid and then reduce that 
figure in the same proportion that the unpaid assessments plus interest 
bear to the total that should have been paid. Arrearages in the payment 
of pension assessments affect certain extra benefits which apply when 
the clergyman dies while in active service, viz: the immediate grant of 
$1,000 to the widow of a clergyman and the increase in the widow's 
minimum pension from $300 to $360. These are extra benefits which 
are payable only where the assessment schedule is complete. Further, 
the granting of the extra benefits to any new beneficiary in any diocese 
is contingent upon every parish in union with the Diocesan Convention 
having paid its proper pension assessments for at least six months of 
the immediately preceding year. Any such extra benefits that may be 
held up temporarily by reason of the failure of some parish to comply 
with this minimum requirement is immediately released if and when the 
delinquency is corrected. 

It may be said, however, that the non-payment of pension assess- 
ments jeopardizes the whole structure of the Church Pension Fund, in- 
asmuch as the assessment system is the foundation upon which a group 
pension plan, such as the Church Pension Fund, rests. Should the asess- 
ment system fail, the Fund could not long continue in successful opera- 
tion. From this it follows that the interests of all the clergy depend 
upon the proper payment of all pension assessments. 

Any member of our Church Pension Fund Committee will be glad to 
discuss the matter of arrearages with any of those here present who are 
interested, and will also endeavor, if possible, to supply any information 
that may be desired.

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE 

DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Right Reverend Father in God, and Members of the Convention: 

It is my privilege, as well as a pleasant duty, to report to this 
Convention the activities of the organized women of the Church within 
the Diocese of East Carolina. The women have carried on their work 
in the Diocese in a splendid cooperative manner, and any success which 
may have been attained during the year is the result of their earnest 
work and prayerful effort. 

Instead of the work of the Auxiliary taking the form of a con- 
densed report written by the President, I wish it could be the full and 
complete reports of the two Convocational Presidents and the Chairmen 
of the various departments, just as they were given at our Annual 
Meeting, but time will not permit this. They are the reports which 
tell of the fine spirit and loving service which is evident in the women's 
work throughout our Diocese. This year they show that there has 
been a steady deepening of a feeling of responsibility to the Auxiliary 
work and a more comprehensive knowledge of the program of the 
Church. 



106 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of the Woman's Auxiliary May 



During the past year the hearts of the women of this Diocese 
were saddened by the death of our beloved Bishop Darst. We feel 
that he has not left us — during the many years that he labored with 
us his strong and vivid personality made an indelible impression on the 
minds and hearts of his people, and his ideals and aspirations will 
continue to influence our life and work in this Diocese. 

It is most fitting that the women of the Auxiliary in this Diocese 
pay tribute here to one of the most loved daughters of this Parish, 
one of the most faithful servants of the Auxiliary, Anne Wetmore 
Tillinghast. A citizen of this town, a. member of this Parish, her 
going into the larger life, left her home, her church, her community, 
together with the Diocese at large, saddened by a sense of loss. There 
was none who knew her who did not feel the richer for the gift of 
her friendship. Hers was a busy, useful life, sharing in many kinds of 
service, but we hold her in especially thankful memory for her devotion 
to the Auxiliary. 

Our women have done, and are doing a splendid work. We are 
growing by the grace of God in our missionary giving throughout the 
United Thank Offering. Our interest in Leper work has grown. We are 
doing a vast amount of overseas relief work, sending food and clothing 
through our United Church Centers. Neither are we neglectiing the 
missionary work at home, in Parishes, in Communities and in our 
Diocese and Nation. 

Time forbids my mentioning many pieces of work being done by 
some of the departments and committees or the many worthwhile 
projects in which the women through their budget are privileged to 
share. 

There have been many encouraging signs of progress in our 
Diocesan family life during the past pear. The Convocational Meet- 
ings in October boasted a record attendance and much interest was 
shown. An increasing effort is being made to make all our meetings 
of practical help to the women, and so, at the Convocational Meetings, 
Departmental Conferences were held by the Diocesan Departmental 
Chairmen and proved to be tremendously successful, and I believe that 
those attending the Conferences went home with a clearer vision of 
the work of the Auxiliary. 

During the past year more branches than ever before carried 
out balanced programs, and though, because of this, the work was 
more uniform, yet there was no lack in variety of approach or achieve- 
ment. 

Spiritual growth is indicated by the number of corporate Com- 
munions and by the observances of Churchwide Day of Prayer, of 
World Community Day and of World Day of Prayer. Educational 
growth is indicated by the increase in the number of branches report- 
ing definite educational programs. We have had growth in numbers, both 
in the number of members and in the number of branches. During the 
past year the Auxiliary branches in this Diocese contributed, in actual 
cash, the sum of $44,493.31, including the United Thank Offering, which 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 107 



1949 Appendix "I" 



amounted to $7,771.69. This was an increase in our total gifts of 
$9,789.03 over the preceding year. Figures are not always evidences 
of spiritual growth, yet in these we can see increased interest and 
concern for our Father's business. 

We have not yet attained the membership that includes all of our 
women but I am not discouraged because of this. I believe that Church 
women are taking a deeper interest in world affairs than ever before. 
I believe that they are taking a more active part in Christian activities, 
both in the Church and in the Community. 

As we look at this partial picture of our work in this Diocese 
during the past year, and at the Auxiliary as a whole throughout 
the Church, and take pride in the breadth of vision, the wide range 
of subjects presented for study, and the many worthwhile causes 
benefitted by our gifts and prayers, we pray that we will not be 
tempted to rest on any good work, but that we will ever be alert to our 
responsibilities to grow spiritually ourselves, and to make our groups 
more truly Auxiliaries of our Parish churches, to our Diocese, and to 
our National Church. 

I cannot conclude this report without thanking Bishop Wright, and 
the Clergy and laymen of the Diocese for the help and consideration 
given the Auxiliary. Without the help and backing our beloved 
Bishop we could have done nothing. We feel very grateful to him 
for his faithful attendance at our Convocational and Annual Meet- 
ings and for the challenge and spirit of encouragement he always 
brings. 

I am deeply grateful to each woman in the Diocese for her co- 
operation in all our undertakings, and for making possible whatever 
success we may have had. 

May we, the men and women of the Church in this Diocese, con- 
tinue to Worship, to Pray and to Work together, that as individual 
Christians, and as members of a Diocesan family, we might so witness 
to the love and power of our Lord that we may have an ever increasing 
share in making Him known to all men everywhere. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARY OWEN SUTHERLAND 



APPENDIX "V 



Bishop Wright and Members o fthe Sixty-Sixth Annual Convention of 
the Diocese of East Carolina: 

Your Chairman of the Diocesan Department of Christian Educa- 
tion asks permission to make the following report of his activities and 
the activities of the Department for the past year: 

In an attempt to make this report as brief as is consistent with 
the importance of the business at hand, only those matters will be 
mentioned as are regarded of vital importance to the cause of Christian 



108 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Appendix "I" May 



Education in the Diocese. The first of these items is the effort of 
the Department during the past three years to promote a project for 
training Church School teahers. The project was started in the fall 
of 1946 when meetings were held at Edenton and Wilmington. They 
were conducted in the falls of 1947 and 1948, being held in these re- 
spective years at several points in the Diocese in an effort to make 
the meetings more accessible to the teachers. Increased attendance 
was noted each year, over a hundred teachers and clergy attended the 
meetings of last fall. The meetings were conducted by members of 
Department of Christian Education of our National Council. 

The project was directed toward a goal designed to provide an 
Annual Institute for the Church School teachers of our Diocesan De- 
partment held each fall in September or early October when many 
of our Church Schools are becoming reorganized after summer vacation, 
and to be conducted by trained instructors in each of the Departments 
of the Church School, the scene of the Institute to be located either at 
Camp Leach or some other place in the Diocese adequately equipped for 
such a project. 

Last year was to have been our first attempt at holding a com- 
plete Institute at Camp Leach. Unfortunately the gravity of the situa- 
tion produced by the State-wide epidemic of polio necessitated cancelling 
this Institute. Accordingly, meetings similar to those held in 1946 and 
1947 were conducted by the Department. We were fortunate in having 
as our leader for these meetings our National Chairman, the Rev. John 
Heuss, D.D. of the National Council. 

We are happy to report that plans are in order this year for con- 
ducting a fully organized Institute for Church School teachers as a 
part of the Clergy-Adult Conference which will be held at Camp Leach 
on June 13-17. Your Chairman for the past three years has been 
asked by the Bishop and the Department to direct this Conference in 
June, though his term of office as Chairman of the Department expires 
as of this Convention date. Though it was late in January that this 
request was made of him, your Chairman has accepted the appointment 
and is doing his best to set u pan adequate program to be conducted 
by an efficient faculty. This has been difficult because of the com- 
paratively short time on which to find outstanding men and women 
for our faculty. However, conditions now point to a successful termina- 
tion of this undertaking. 

Finally a third project which proved to be popular and, we hope 
of value, to the Diocese was the Lenten Mite-Box Offering of the 
children of the Diocese at a special service. The first which was held 
last year for the Diocese at St. Mary's Church, Kinston. The response 
was so exceptional that the Church could not begin to accommodate the 
congregation. This past week at St. James' Church in Wilmington, a 
similar service was held for the children of our Diocese, promoted of 
course, by this Department. Fo Treasons which will not be mentioned 
in this report, it was necessary to hold this service in Wilmington this 
year.. Due to the greater distance between Wilmington and many 
points in the Diocese as compared to the location of the service last 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 109 



1949 Resolution 



year, it was anticipated that not nearly so many children would attend. 
Only fifteen Parishes reported. But the total amount of the Offering 
reported by these Parishes came to within three hundred dollars of 
equaling the total of last year from a much greater number of Parishes. 
Undoubtedly the sum total of the Mite-Box Offering for 1949 will 
greatly exceed that of 1948. 

In closing this report your Chairman would like to impress upon 
this Convention what he feels to be the tremendous importance to our 
Diocese of the Annual Institute for Church School teachers and the 
Annual Mite-Box Offering Service for our children. It is his earnest 
hope and prayer that these two projects will be conducted each year 
and that they will be nurtured to the fulness of the Glory of God which 
can be and will be evidenced in them if properly attended. 

Respectfull submitted, 

JAMES F. FERNEYHOUGH

PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION, 

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH, FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA 

May 11-12, 1949 

RESOLUTION 

WITNESSETH THAT: 

Mrs. Alice Hoffman, Mrs. Grace Roosevelt McMillan, Mrs. Quentin 
Roosevelt, Mr. Theodore Roosevelt III, and Mr. Cornelius Van Shaack 
Roosevelt are the owners of a large tract of land on Bogue Banks, 
a long, narrow, coastal island, located in Carteret County, North Caro- 
lina. This tract of land lies between the summer resort of Atlantic 
Beach, North Carolina, and the small fishing village of Salter Path, 
and extends from Bogue Sound on the north to the Atlantic Ocean 
on the south. 

Through their attorney, Mr. Frank M. Wooten of Greenville, North 
Carolina, these owners expressed a desire to make a gift of a portion 
of this land to the Diocese of East Carolina, for use as a camp site 
and conference center, and after some negotiation a tract of land of 
about sixty-two acres, was selected, surveyed, and marked. The tract 
has the advantages of 1500 foot frontages on both the ocean and the 
sound, with fine bathing beaches, easy accessibility by state highway 
from Atlantic Beach, large trees and shrubs on the sound side, and cool 
ocean breezes throughout the summer months. 

Prior to the Diocesan Convention the Executive Council of the 
Diocese visited the area in a body and expressed pleasure in these ad- 
vantages and in the great possibilities of the site. 



110 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of St. Mary's School May 



On the day of the Convention's opening Mr. Wooten reported the 
circumstances of the gift and presented the executed deed, in the 
name of the donors, to the Diocese. The Reverend Roscoe C. Hauser, 
Jr., supplemented Mr. Wooten's report with a brief description of the 
property. Upon motion duly made, seconded and passed, the matter 
was referred to a committee consisting of Mr. Wallace C. Murchison, 
of Wilmington, Chairman, the Reverend E. F. Moseley, of Kinston 
and Mr. C. R. Davant, of Morehead City for examination of the deed 
with the Chancellor of the Diocese and a report on the gift. 

The next morning the committee made its report, and upon motion 
of the committee chairman, duly seconded and unanimously passed, the 
Convention accepted the gift, officially designated the property as the 
Quentin Roosevelt Memorial Site and instructed the committee to draw 
up and present to each of the donors, in the name of the convention, an 
appropriate resolution of thanks. 

NOW THEREFORE, be it resolved tha* in the name of the Con- 
vention of the Diocese of East Carolina, we do hereby express to Mrs. 
Alice Hoffman, Mrs. Grace Roosevelt McMillan, Mrs. Quentin Roosevelt, 
Mr. Theodore Roosevelt III, and Mr. Cornelius Van Shaack Roosevelt 
our grateful acceptance of the Quentin Rosevelt Memorial Site, Bogue 
Banks, North Carolina, as a camp site and conference center. We ex- 
press to them our heartfelt appreciation of their generosity and sacrifice 
and their interest in the children, young people and adults of this 
Diocese. We thank them for their example of Christian stewardship, 
their realization of the needs of our Diocese, and their vision of the 
growth and expanding influence of our Church in this part of America. 
We invite them to visit us at any time and share in our worship and 
our service. And we ask God's blessing upon them and their work in 
the years to come.

REPORT OF SAINT MARY'S SCHOOL AND 
JUNIOR COLLEGE 

May 17, 1949 
To The Rt. Rev. Thomas H. Wright 
Diocese of East Carolina 

The 108th annual session of the school began September 27, 1948, 
and will close June 6, 1949. Opening was delayed two weeks due to 
polio epidemic .in North Carolina. Three hundred and nine students 
were registered from 16 states. A capacity enrollment for the 1949-50 
session is assured as registrations are well above average. A waiting

list for 1949-50 was established in February. 

A large amount of painting, redecorating, and repair work was 
done last summer. The program for the coming summer will be more 
extensive as most of the buildings must be painted on the outside. The 
trustees have authorized the following projects which have become 
necessary or will make operation of the plant more economical. 

1. Purchase of a dish washer and a glass washer with auxiliary 
tables. 

2. Heat controls for buildings. 

3. Dormitory furniture. 

4. Replacing of outside electrical wiring. 

5. Cement the basement floor of Smedes Hall. 

6. Installation of new water intake for heating plant. 

7. Pave walkway on east side of front campus. 

The school dining room will be completely redecorated during the 
summer. The funds for this latter work have been raised by the alumnae 
during the last two years. 

The cost of operation continued to rise and has not leveled off to 
any appreciable extent. Constant need for repair of old buildings and 
replacement of worn-out equipment has forced the school to practice 
rigid economy. 

During the year 1949 the five owning dioceses are contributing 
a total of $3,000 toward the support of the school. North Carolina 
is giving $2,000 of this sum. More help of this nature is desperately 
needed if the school is to maintain its high position in the realm of 
education. Schools controlled by other denominations are receiving much 
more assistance from the churches that control them and are thus in a 
position to give better service and more extensive scholarship aid. 
The school gives a $250 discount to the daughters of Episcopal clergy- 
men who are enrolled as boarding students. For the 1949-50 session 
the school will allow discounts amounting to over $3,000 for this purpose 
as 12 daughters of Episcopal clergymen are enrolled. There are two 
others on the waiting list who will be accepted if places become avail- 
able for them. The help given by the Church thus is returned entirely 
this year in discounts to daughters of clergymen. 

The Board of Trustees at the annual meeting held last November 
voted to close the Centennial Campaign and to begin a Living Endow- 
ment Fund. The alumnae and friends of the school will be asked to 
participate in this annual support of the school's program. 

Plans for future development and improvement of academic stand- 
ards and physical equipment are constantly under study. Saint Mary's 
must maintain the high position it has held in the past to insure its 
continued service to the generations to come. 

Respectfully submitted,

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL AND FINANCE 
DEPARTMENT 

MANY IMPORTANT DECISIONS MADE AND POLICIES SET AT 

LENGTHY MEETING IN ST. JAMES PARISH HOUSE 

ON FEBRUARY 11TH, 1949 

The Executive Council of the Diocese and the Department of 
Finance met together in St. James Parish House, Wilmington, Friday, 
February 11th, at 10:30 A.M. Fourteen of the eighteen members of the 
Council, three associate members of the Department of Finance, the 
Chancellor of the Diocese and one visitor were present. C. McD. Davis, 
member of the National Council and associate member of the Diocesan 
Department of Finance, had just returned from a meeting of the Na- 
tional Council and reported the most significant accomplishments of 
that meeting. Mr. Davis particularly stressed that the Council voted to 
continue its support of the Bishop Payne Divinity School in Virginia 
for the time being. 

Peter B. Ruffin, Chairman of the Department of Finance, presided 
over the meeting for Bishop Wright, inasmuch as most of the items 
on the agenda came from that department. Mr. Ruffin reported a very 
encouraging response from the parishes and missions of the Diocese in 
payments during 1948 and the acceptance of new apportionments for 
1949. The Treasurer of the Diocese, Robert Strange, gave a more de- 
tailed report of the finances of the Diocese during 1948, reporting that 
payments during the year were well ahead of expectations. He re- 
ported a balance on hand of slightly over $21,000.00. His report will 
be available in more details in printed form at the time of the Con- 
vention in May. The matter of insurance of Diocesan property was 
discussed briefly and referred to the Committee on Insurance on Church 
Property. 

Allowances For Widows 

The Council then passed a motion that suitable allowances should 
be made to Mrs. Robert Strange and Mrs. Thomas C. Darst, widows 
of our two former Bishops, and the matter was referred to the Depart- 
ment of Finance. On motion of C. McD. Davis, the Department of 
Finance decided that, retroactive to January 1, 1949, Mrs. Strange and 
Mrs. Darst should each receive the sum of $1,000.00 per year, or $83.33 
per month, subject only to future policies of the Department. 

On invitation of Bishop Wright, the Rev. William L. Martin, Rector 
of St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, presented plans for a Church Institution 
Day to be observed throughout the Diocese annually, beginning early 
in October of 1949. A number of our Church Institutions have re- 
quested that items be placed in the budget of East Carolina towards 
their support. These sums amount to $6,750.00. The Institutions con- 
cerned are: the Virginia Seminary, the College and the Seminary at the 
University of the South, at Sewanee, Bishop Payne Divinity School and 



SIXTY-SIXTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 113 



1949 Report of Executive Council 



St. Mary's School and Junior College. An item will be placed in the 
budget for these schools and the rest of the necessary funds will be 
raised in one joint Diocesan offering on Church Institution Day. 

It was reported by Bishop Wright that the National Council would 
be unable to undertake a Diocesan survey in East Carolina within the 
next year. On his suggestion, a committee was appointed from the 
Diocese to undertake and make such a survey and report to the Con- 
vention in May. John G. Bragaw, of Washington, was appointed Chair- 
man of this Committee. Serving with him will be A. K. Barrus, of 
Kinston, and the Rev. John W. Hardy, Rector of St. John's Church, 
Wilmington. 

Diocesan Convention Plans 

Upon the suggestion of Peter B. Ruffin, the Council moved to change 
the time of meeting of the Diocesan Convention, beginning with the 
Convention at St. John's Church, Fayetteville, on May 11 and 12, 1949. 
The Convention will open with a Celebration of Holy Communion at 
11:00 A.M., on May 11, and at that time will hear the Bishop's address. 
After a business session during the afternoon of May 11, there will be 
a great Convention Service at 8:00 P.M., with a guest preacher. The 
Convention will reconvene on the morning of May 12, to adjourn about 
4:00 P.M., of that day. There will be no Laymen's dinner during the 
Convention, but rather the men of the Diocese will attempt to place 
greater emphasis upon the Laymen's Week-End at Camp Leach this 
summer. 

Other financial matters passed on by the group included the alloca- 
tion of $500.00 toward the purchase of automobiles by each of three 
new ministers who will graduate from Seminaries this spring and begin 
work in the Diocese this summer. A sum of $3,000.00 was set aside 
to help the delegates to the General Convention in San Francisco next 
fall to defray their expenses. This sum will be divided between the four 
clerical deputies, the four lay deputies, and two delegates to the Youth 
Week-End. It was also voted that the Diocese accept a cut of $1,500.00 
in the amount now being received by East Carolina from the National 
Church. This is approximately one-half of the amount which the Na- 
tional Council requested be cut from the sum of their aid to our 
diocese. 

To Study Hospital 

Other Committees appointed at the meeting included one to investi- 
gate certain matters concerning the Good Shepherd Hospital in New 
Bern. This appointment followed a report by John G. Dunn, Jr., mem- 
ber of the Council and Chairman of the Board of the Hospital. Those 
who will serve on the Committee are Mr. Dunn, Dr. Ashford and John 
Heywood Jones, all of New Bern, John W. Graham of Edenton and the 
Rev. Roscoe Hauser of Greenville. The Chancellor of the Diocese, 
Junius D. Grimes, of Washington, will advise with this Committee. 
Bishop Wright, Peter B. Ruffin and Robert Strange were appointed 
as a Committee to draw up the 1950 budget which will be presented to 
the May Convention. 



114 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Laymen Thank Offering May 



A report was heard from the Department of Promotion, this report 
being- read by the Bishop in the absence of the Rev. Mortimer Glover, 
Chairman of the Department. There was also a lengthy report from 
the Committee on Realignment of Diocesan Boundary Lines in North 
Carolina, which Committee was appointed at the Convention last May. 
Mr. Grimes told of a meeting of this Committee with similar com 
mittees from the other two Dioceses in the State. The three Bishops 
are to confer on April 19th, in Raleigh and there will be another Joint 
Committee Meeting on April 28th. Reports will then be made to each 
of the three Diocesan Conventions. 

St. Anne's Reverts to Mission 

A discussion of the possibility of changing the fiscal year in the 
Diocese led to no conclusive devision. A request from St. Anne's Church, 
Jacksonville, that it be returned to the status of a Mission rather than 
a Parish, was read to the group and referred to the Diocesan Con- 
vention, with the approval of the Executive Council.

Avoca, Holy Innocents' 
*Ayden, St. James'

The Annual Parochial Report is required by Canon 21, sections 3 
and 4 of our Diocese. Section 3 lays the responsibility on the Clergy 
of the Cure and section 4 lays it on the Wardens if the Cure is vacant. 
The report is to be sent to the Secretary not later than February 1st. 
It is a report to the Bishop, and failure to send it in withholds from 
him the state of that Cure. This is a serious breach of our Diocesan Canon 
and in order to correct this growing laxity in the Church, this com- 
mittee suggests that the convention reprimand those places failing to 
make such a report. 

This report will not deal with many figures since the Bishop in his 
excellent address has covered much of this phase of the state of the 
Church. It is apparent after conferring with many department Chair- 
men that a healthy state exists in our Diocese. The spirit of fellowship 
and cooperation is excellent. We should thank God for endowing us with 
much superb leadership, especially for the ability, consecration, cordial- 
ity, humbleness, unceasing labor, and spiritual strength of our beloved 
Bishop. Those who are close to him realize how fortunate we are in 
East Carolina to have as our Right Reverend Father in God, Thomas 
Henry Wright. Often he labors into the late hours of the night to ad- 
minister his work; he is on his knee frequently, seeking Divine Guidance 
for us and for himself. His efforts should be an inspiration to us and 
his consecration a Divine Strength. 

There are parts of our Diocesan work for which we should thank 
God and take courage. The Woman's Auxiliary is a greater spiritual, 
Missionary, educational, and financial strength to this Diocese than we 
can begin to realize. Their devotions to the cause of Christ and their 
zeal to make His Kingdom a reality is an underguiding factor in the 
work of our Church. Through their educational program they are con- 
stantly informed and alert to the work and program of the Church. 
Through the United Thank Offering they have set an example and chal- 
lenge to the whole Church. The offering reflects their superb interest 
in the Missionary activity of the Church. This offering has constantly 
grown from its beginning in size and in number of women contributing. 
The Auxiliary contributes much financially to the Bishop's Fund, the 
Student and Young People's work, the Missionary work of our Diocese, 
and the service rendered to promote Christian Social Relations. The 
Woman's Auxiliary touches every phase of our Diocesan work and for 
its devotion and leadership we thank Almighty God. 



SIXTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 19 

1950 Report of the Committee on the State of the Church 



In keeping with the high note sounded at the General Convention 
the work of our Christian Educational Department is beginning, in many 
places, to be felt in Parish activities. Several Parishes have begun in 
their Church Schools, the new Program now in process of being formu- 
lated by the national Church. Several of the Parishes have already had 
institutes to train leadership. Five of our Clergy have attended insti- 
tutes held at the College of Preachers at the National Cathedral. The 
Adult Conference at Camp Leach this summer will devote much of its 
program to this growing interest in the education for Christian services 
of the youth and adults of the Church. Our Committee commends this 
effort to strengthen and increase the knowledge of the people, especially 
the youth, for the Christian life that we are called by the Church and 
its Master to live. There is probably no more important emphasis that 
should be made in our Diocese, today, than this, for if we know Christ, 
nothing can prevent our serving Him. 

The prospects for our Diocesan training center, Camp Leach, seem 
brighter this year than it has in many years. We are fortunate to have 
its management in such capable and efficient hands. The success of the 
Camp depends, ultimately, on the interest and effort exercised by out 
Clergy and lay-people in attending and getting others to attend. It has 
an excellent group of camp directors who are planning fine programs. 
Camp Leach is far superior to camps of most Dioceses in our Church, yet 
over 50% of the campers who attend each summer are from Churches 
other than our own. This can and should be corrected by seeing that 
more of our own children attend. It is most urgent that thought be 
given now to the new site given to the Church for a conference center 
in order that we not lose the valuable property that has been offered 
to us. This is not to be construed as a proposal to move Camp Leach, 
for that is not within the scope of this committee; it is merely a re- 
minder to the convention that we must not lose sight of this gift and 
the provisions which accompany it. 

The advancement made in the colored work by our Clergy should be 
noted by this convention. There has been a greater increase in con- 
firmations, baptisms, and Church attendance here, than elsewhere in the 
Diocese. This reflects the consecrated leadership and devoted response 
of the lay-people. The two newest Church buildings in the Diocese aue 
St. Timothy's, Farmville, and St. Thomas', Slacksville. We are still in 
great need of more colored Clergy to advance the work of the Church in 
fields now vacant and to open new fields. Study should be made of the 
financial situation of our colored Churches and plans formulated to give 
greater help and encouragement. The general Church makes a sub- 
stantial contribution to our colored work. This responsibility we should 
strive to take upon ourselves. 

The Good Shepherd Hospital in New Bern, the only Church Hospital 
in our Diocese is now self-supporting. It has recently purchased from 
the Federal Government the Nurses Home and West wing-property, 
valued at $90,000. Its number of patients was greater last year than 
ever in its history. The City of New Bern, has for the first time, placed 
the Hospital in its budget for $1200 a year. This growth in value, in 
patronage, and in self-support is due to the capable and efficient busi- 
ness manager and the unceasing effort of the Board of the Hospital. 
This committee commends them for their great contribution of time and 
the splendid results gained. The Hospital is making the healing Minister 
of the Church a reality to those which it touches. 



20 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Board oi Examining Chaplains May 

Despite the many calls on the Diocese, it is in a good financial con- 
dition as the Treasurer's Report will show. Our Church is on a stronger 
financial basis than it has been in many years. We are beginning, at 
last, to cast off the stigma of an aided Diocese. The plan of the Diocese 
now is to become self-supporting in six years, reducing each year by 
$1500, what we have been receiving from the National Church. We have 
been receiving $8,800 which means that we are only giving, over and 
above what we receive, to the General Churches Program about $2,000. 
We must correct this deplorable condition, and the new plan will enable 
us to do this. 

Probably the greatest single achievement for our Diocese is that 
the Bishop Darst Memorial Fund be a success. It is progressing favor- 
ably toward its goal. It must have the support of every Parish and 
Mission if we are to go forward. Its possibilities are greater than we 
can realize until we see the results that it can accomplish. Through 
it the Bishop will be enabled to give our Missionary Clergy a living 
salary. By it we will be saved the disgrace of our Diocese becoming a 
Missionary District. It has a great contribution to make to our Diocese, 
and we feel that with the capable leadership that we have in its Chair- 
man, that it will mean a great step forward in the Diocese of East 
Carolina. 

In closing this report may we emphasize that spiritual growth and 
strength must ever be the purpose and objective of our Church. The 
primary ills of our day are not political or economical but religious. 
We of the Church have a grave responsibility. Our resources are as 
unlimited as all the manifold gifts of God; Our objective and purpose, 
as broad as the Kingdom of God. Our tools are sufficient for the re- 
sponsible task, for they are the Holy Spirit and the fact that we are 
the Sons of God. ■ May we in the Diocese of East Carolina use all the 
resources offered by God to His Church to make our lives reflect His 
Glory. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN W. HARDY, Chairman

Report of Standing Committee ior Convention May 

Consent was given to the request for the election of a Suffragan 
Bishop for the Diocese of Dallas. 

Respectfully submitted, 

STEPHEN GARDNER, President 
JOHN G. BRAGAW, Secretary 

Mr. Peter B. Ruffin made a verbal report on the Bishop 
Darst Memorial Fund, reminding the Convention of the Pur- 
poses of the Fund, namely, to augment the regular apportion- 
ments annually for a period of five years by the sum of $25,- 
000.00; this fund to be allocated approximately as follows: 

1. Increases in Missionary salaries in the Diocese — $10,000.00. 

2. Increases in travel allowances for Missionary Clergy in the 
Diocese— $5,000.00. 

3. Retirement Funds for certain Diocesan Clergymen not yet eligible 
for the Pensions— $5,000.00. 

4. Increases in contributions to the General Church as authorized 
by the General Convention of 1949— $5,000.00. 

A total of $25,000.00. 

He stated that the Campaign to raise this money in cash and 
pledges started in January 1950, and that to date — May 10, 1950 — of an 
objective of $25,000.00 for 1950, $29,765.56 had been pledged of which 
$27,106.45 was cash; and that of the objective of $125,000.00 for five 
years, $80,726.36 had been pledged. He was confident that the whole 
amount would be raised. 

He mentioned especially the help the Campaign received from Mr. 
Stanley Woodland, Mr. Strange and Miss Burgess in the Diocesan Of- 
fice, Mr. Henry C. Bost, professional advertising man, and Miss Norma 
Stoker and Miss Jane Edwards (Baptists) in his office. 

He recommended that the Campaign be continued through the next 
four years, that a proper committee of the Executive Council be set up 
to wisely distribute the money thus raised, that the Bishop set aside 
a Sunday on which to dedicate this Fund with an appropriate service. 

The Bishop congratulated the Diocese on the success of the 
Campaign, stating that he was confident that the total amount 
would be raised when all the Parishes and Missions in the 
Diocese had responded. 

Mr. Ruffin moved that the Campaign be continued. This 
was seconded by Mr. Grimes and passed. 

Mr. Grimes moved that the Convention show its apprecia- 
tion to Mr. Ruffin by a rising vote of thanks. This was done. 

Rev. Edgar Halleck moved, seconded by the Rev. Stephen 
Gardner, that a Sunday be set aside in the near future for the 
Consecration of the Bishop Darst Memorial Fund. This was 
carried. 



SIXTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 23 

1950 Anticipated Income — Budget 1951 

(Bishop Wright set aside Whitsunday, May 28th for this 
service.) 

Bishop Wright asked for a motion of appreciation to the 
Baptist ladies in Mr. Ruffin's office for their work in setting 
up this program. This was made and passed. 

The Convention recessed for Luncheon which was served 
in the Parish House. 

In presenting the Treasurer's Report (See Appendix "B"), 
Mr. Robert Strange requested that Reports to the Convention, 
to be printed in the Journal, be condensed as much as possible 
on account of the high cost of printing. 

Mr. Grimes asked the Treasurer about the receipts on the 
apportionments. Mr. Strange said they almost kept up with 
the expenses. He added that on account of the income on in- 
vested funds falling off, it was necessary that the Parishes 
and Missions pay their Apportionments monthly, as all Dio- 
cesan bills were paid monthly. 

Mr. Strange further suggested that money be left in wills 
to the Diocesan Trust Fund, and that Tithing be something 
to aim for. 

He stated that the Bishop Darst Memorial Fund was kept 
in a separate account. 

The Report of the Trustees of the Diocese was presented 
by title. (See Appendix "C") 

Mr. W. G. Gaither, chairman of the Department of Fi- 
nace, presented the Annual Budget for 1951 and moved its

SIXTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 25 

1950 Report of Diocesan Survey Committee 

In presenting the Budget for 1951, Mr. Gaither stated that 
the apportionments were to be raised 10% each year for a 
period of five years. In supplementing Mr. Gaither's remarks, 
Mr. Peter B. Ruff in, chairman of the Bishop Darst Memorial 
Fund, explained the relationship between that Fund and the 
10% increase in the apportionments. At the end of five years 
the 10% per year increase would support the advances made 
by the Fund. 

The Rev. James F. Ferneyhough asked if after five years 
the Diocese would no longer be an aided Diocese. Bishop 
Wright stated that he thought that would be true. 

Mr. Frank Wooten suggested that the proposed Budget be 
mimeographed in the future. The Bishop said it would be 
done. 

The Rev. John W. Hardy presented the Report of the 
Diocesan Survey Committee as follows: 

REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN SURVEY COMMITTEE 

In his address to the convention last year, our Bishop delegated 
this committee with the solemn responsibility of seeing in what ways 
our Diocese could best serve the Church and thereby become a stronger 
means of extending God's Kingdom in East Carolina. Too long we have 
labored under the excuse that we are primarily a Missionary Diocese, 
and have allowed that excuse, often, to cause us to grow static. We are 
in the midst of one of the greatest agricultural sections of our Country. 
God has endowed us with many blessings and we should use them as 
His gifts. We are a part of that section of the Country in which our 
Church had its beginning in this Country. Our heritage is great and 
so are our endowments and opportunities. We can never lose sight that 
God's Kingdom grows as His children are brought into loving relationship 
with Him and that they may have the strengthening fellowship that 
comes as we are truly Members of His Living Body, the Church. This 
means that we must never lose sight of the fact that God's Kingdom is 
composed of people. This committee has kept this constantly before it 
as it has worked toward the discharge of the responsibility and chal- 
lenge given us by the last convention and by the most helpful sugges- 
tions of our Bishop. 

The committee had its first meeting at Camp Leach on June 24, 
with the Bishop, the Treasurer of the Diocese and all Members present. 
The committee realized from its beginning, that if its work was to be 
effectively carried out, it must be based on a long-term plan. This is 
necessary because of the vital effect that an adequate program would 
have on many of the Fields of our Diocese. These changes cannot come 
overnight, for they must be worked out with each individual Mission 
Field. This Program will require Christian love and cooperation; it 
will require the willingness of each Field to face its situations realisti- 
cally and truthfully. 

In order to give deep and adequate thought to the very vital impli- 
cations of the scope of this committee and to give thorough thought to 



26 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Diocesan Survey Committee May 

the two main considerations that present themselves, two sub-commit- 
tees were appointed by the Chairman. 

The sub-committee on realignment of the Mission Fields was charg- 
ed with the responsibility to study our present Field with the idea, that 
when practical for more efficient work, changes would be proposed. 
These changes when proposed would be "to provide a more workable and 
practical arrangement with respect to geography, economics, potential 
financial support, and general interest in the Church." This sub-com- 
mittee had a meeting with the Bishop and drew up a list of proposed 
changes. Shortly after this, the Bishop Darst Memorial Fund had its 
conception and it was felt unwise to present these proposals for the time 
being. 

The sub-committee on Canons was charged with the responsibility of 
careful study of the Canons of the Diocese and Canons and policy of the 
General Church relating to the classification of Parishes, aided Parishes, 
and Missions; and to recommend changes in our present Diocesan Canons 
that would correct the discrepancies that now exist. This sub-committee 
was further charged with the responsibility of making such proposals 
as were necessary to provide a Joint Vestry for all Parishes and Mis- 
sions in each Field in which a Rector serves more than one Church. 
Mr. Grimes, the Chairman of this sub-committee on Canons, will make 
the report of their findings. 

The Committee as a whole felt that since the majoriy of the 
Churches in the Diocese were not self-supporting and occupied so much 
of the Bishop's time, requiring him to be away from his home practically 
all of the time, that something should be done at once to relieve him of 
part of his burdensome duties. We lay this matter on the conscience of 
the convention. 

Under the able and consecrated leadership of our beloved Bishop the 
Diocese of East Carolina is beginning to throw off the stigma of an 
aided Diocese. If this beginning is to grow into maturity, it will require 
the consecrated cooperation of every Parish, Mission, and individual in 
our Diocese. God's Kingdom must go forward and our committee feels 
that these proposals will aid its advancement in the Diocese of East 
Carolina. 

Mr. Grimes will now present the report on the sub-committee on 
Canons. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN W. HARDY, Chairman 
Diocesan Survey Committee 

Mr. Grimes presented the following Report of the sub-com- 
mittee on Canons: 

RESOLVED THAT: 

The churches of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of 
East Carolina are hereby divided into three groups; classified and defin- 
ed as follows, viz: 

1. A CHURCH WITH FULL PARISH STATUS: This classification 
includes all churches which are: 

(a) Entirely self-supporting; and 

(b) pays the entire salary of its Rector 

(c) supplies and maintains a suitable Rectory, 



SIXTY SEVENTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 27 

1950 Report of Diocesan Survey Committee 

(d) pays promptly the full mathematical apportionment as 
assigned by the convention for the support of the Diocese 
and Mission work of the church. 

2. AN AIDED PARISH: This classification embraces all churches 
which : 

(a) Pay 50% or more of the
